    I am intrigued by GB18030 encoding. There is a table of equivalences in
    No doubt Unihan will at some stage include these 2 & 4 byte values.

    I enquired about the 'super font' created by a Beijing foundry,, and am fairly astonished
    at the prices, as you see from the attached.

    I suppose this is the only source for such a full font.

    It would be helpful to learn availability and cost of the full GB18030 font.
    The bitmap fonts (GB2312) are also of interest.
