    The JIS X 0208 and JIS X 0213 include a description (in Japanese, but
    with pictures) of the relationship. They are available on line: go to; click on the blue button labeled “JIS” in the
    Search section; enter “JIS X 0213” in the third input box; click on the
    attached button; select JIS X 0213 in the resulting list. The first PDF
    is about the changes in :2004, the others are actually :2000. Similarly
    for 0208.

    You can also consult Ken Lunde's excellent book: CJKV Information
    Processing, ISBN 1-56592-224-7

    If you intend to do almost any work on CJK stuff, you need those two
    sources, and some more.
