HKSAR's GCCS extension to Big5 revised and renamed to HKSCS


Hong Kong's GCCS (Government Chinese Character Set) extension (1995) to
Big5, consisting of 3049 characters, has been revised and renamed to HKSCS
(Hong Kong Supplementary Character Set). (Sep 1999)  HKSCS consists of
4702 characters, of which 2943 are from GCCS (the others were weeded out)
and 1759 are new.

has a long PDF file describing it, with charts; as well as fonts, Cangjie
input, mapping tables to Unicode (both with and without Unicode 3.0's CJK
Extension A).

is the GCCS site.  (Maybe updated to HKSCS?--I don't know.)
