    Happy New Year, Everyone!

    I would like to announce the publication of "CJKV Information
    Processing" Second Edition. See:

    I received the first two copies on Christmas Eve, and the book is just
    now getting into the distribution channels. Robert Bringhurst wrote a
    very eloquent three-page Foreword for the book.

    Note that the book will also be available in PDF that includes
    bookmarks plus an interactive TOC and index (if you click on a TOC
    entry, or a page number in the index, you are taken to the appropriate
    page). The PDF version should show up as available as soon as the
    printed version is reflected as being available (for some reason
    O'Reilly's ordering system links them in this way).

    In terms of how this book was produced, I typeset the entire thing
    myself using Adobe InDesign CS3-J, including building its index using
    InDesign's indexing capabilities. (For comparison, I used Adobe
    FrameMaker for typesetting the first edition ten years ago.) OpenType
    fonts were used extensively, and when specific glyphs were required,
    instead of building custom fonts, I implemented them as SING glyphlets.
