Maybe this can't be answered. Trying to get a font through the localization process and I continue to find missing glyphs for the CJK that I haven't created. Thankfully, less each iteration.

Is there a reference list for the most commonly used CJK font glyphs?

I have included Hiragana, Katakana, and 72 of the CJK Unified Ideographs. I hesitate to delve into the other 20992 CJK UI without having some list or guidance.

Thanks in advance if anyone can point me in the right direction.

Steve

Although no character codes are provided, this document may help to narrow down the ch...

To provide even more helpful information, I cross-referenced all 20,902 characters in Version 1.1 of the URO, and found that these 2,513 ideographs match the criteria that I stated in my original reply.

Enjoy!
