    These seem to be the official test data files. They are also downloadable from
    various Chinese websites, including :

    The former page has full explanations of the test procedure ... basically, to be
    able to open each of the test files, and correctly* display and print the entire
    contents of the page (comparing the results with the official GB 18030-2000 code
    tables); and to be able to open and edit random.txt.

    * N.B. "correctly" means "according to the glyphs in the code charts" for
    Tibetan (Zang.txt) and Mongolian (Meng.txt).
