Dear Magda,
Thank you for your help a few days ago. According to your information, I
have obtained codepages MS936 (simplied Chinese) & MS950 (traditional
Chinese) and made a font for some Chinese characters. Glyphs are copies
from some existing fonts and metrics are checked. When typing my font, I
have noticed that the cursor stays in the middle of the character for
traditional Chinese as follows:
For simplied Chinese, only half-width cursor appears, then half character
appears, then after RETURN, the cursor stays in the middle of the character.
I have copied one of these characters to char 0031 which is numeric "1"
under MS Windows 1252 Latin 1. Then the cursor becomes normal when I type
I have read the article about CJK Width on your site and found that my
characters correctly sit in the Wide zone between 4E00 - 9FA5. Maybe there
is something missing on my double-byte encoding. Please advise remedy.
Yours sincerely,
Marvin Wong
