    The long term aim of the above font is to include different locales in
    it, and therefore the latest release is ~ttc which allows for
    differennt glyphs to displaay for each locale. The present version has
    mainly mainland and Taiwan variants.

    The challenge regarding cjkv fonts is the number of glyphs required,
    20 or 30 thousand being beaerly enough to cover the basics.
