I could be wrong in saying that PKS C 5700 became KS C 5700 although
it's (almost) certain that PKS represents 'Proposed Korean Standard'
(where Korean means South Korean). Unicode 3.0 (p. 259) lists two PKS
C's as K source 2 and K source 3 (PKS C 5700-1 1994 and PKS C 5700-2
1994) and <http://www.cse.cuhk.edu.hk/~irg/irg/N777_CJK_B_CoverNote.pdf>
lists PKS C 5700-3 1998 as another K source. What is this mysterious
PKS C 5700-[1-3]? I asked around in the past but haven't obtained the
definitive answer. Perhaps, I should ask someone in IRG.
