Recently on the OpenType list, a question was asked about handling
the differences between certain CJK punctuation within a single
font for correctly displaying horizontal Japanese and Chinese text
in the same file.
John Hudson offered a solution for this issue.
How do these differences apply to Unicode plain text and the
Plane 14 tags? For example, it was noted that the ideographic full
stop is centered in Chinese text but sits on the baseline (and isn't
centered) in Japanese text.
Without a plain text method of distinguishing the writing system
for a run of text, a plain text file wouldn't be able to be
correctly displayed if it had both Japanese and Chinese text.
(Ideographic variants notwithstanding.)
