    That seems like a perfectly reasonable question to ask. Its answer might be
    complex, but it's nonetheless a valid question. In fact, to me, it reads like a
    Unicode FAQ.

    I get the subtle distinction you're making; I just don't understand why you're
    making it in this context. In my original post, I used "CJK text" in opposition
    to non-CJK text because non-CJK text (in particular, Latin text) in
    Normalization Form D displays properly in the same software I described where
    CJK text (in particular, katakana and Hangul) in Normalization Form D does not
    display properly.

    I don't understand what's wrong with using CJK as an umbrella term, which is
    exactly what it is. I don't think it refers specifically just to Chinese
    characters, or Han ideographs. There are terms specifically for those: Chinese
    characters and Han ideographs.
