    sorry to interrupt, but why can't the same process that has been applied
    to all the other han glyphs take place here? Is it really that hard to
    find some authoritative North Koren sources on stroke order and glyphs?
    I noticed that University Professors helped with the Japanese glyphs at
    least (found some things in the mailing list archives as well as on some
    home pages).
    The thing is, doo we need a font that is made by the government/language
    authority or just authoritative sources?

    Please enlighten me.
