Are there codes available for each standard individual
I have been unable to determine whether there are codes
available for individual Chinese brushstrokes. I think that
some individual brushstrokes have codes in the published
Unicode scheme, but not all.
For a reference to a general categorization of standard
brushstrokes, please visit
www.chinavoc.com/arts/calligraphy/eightstroke.asp. (I have
no relationship to the site.) It lists eight standard
categories of brushstrokes (dot, dash, perpendicular
downstroke, downstroke to the left, wavelike stroke, hook,
upstroke to the right, and bend or twist). For each of
these 8 categories, it lists 8 subtypes of brushstrokes.
(Apologies if you have already received this. I sent a
similar email a few weeks ago. I did not receive any
replies. I think the email did not get sent.)
Many thanks in advance for your attention.
