_Choices: Unicode, MBE, Both
_Description: Font variant to install:
This font contains bopomofo extended glyphs, which are used to annotate
Chinese glyphs to show how the characters should be pronounced. These
bopomofo extended glyphs are used for some minority languages, like
Taiwanese and Hakka. They are mainly used in Taiwan.
There are two variants of these bopomofo extended glyphs in use, one which
conforms to the Unicode standard, and one, called Modern Bopomofo
Extensions (MBE), which aims to be easier to read and write.
The Unicode variant also contains the MBE variants encoded as TTF
stylistic alternatives (SALT). As only few programs can support this
feature, users who prefer to use the MBE glyphs should install the MBE
variant. More information on this can be found on the project homepage:
If in doubt, please select "Unicode".

This font was taken from the from the TrueType fonts generously released by
Arphic Technologies Taiwan under the Arphic Public License.
It was modified with Fontforge by Arne Goetje <email@example.com> to contain
both Big5 and GB2312 charsets plus some european characters.
Currently it fully supports the following charsets:
Bopomofo Extensions for Hakka, Minnan (Unicode 4.0) and MBE variants using
the Stylistic Alternatives (salt) feature from the OTF spec.
Partly support is implemented for:
This font is under development, new glyphs for the partly supported charsets
are constantly added.
This package contains now both variants, Unicode and MBE. However, only the
Unicode variant is provided as a TTF. In most cases you just need the Unicode
variant. If you want to install the MBE variant, you need to use xdelta 1.1.3
to patch the TTF.
xdelta patch uming2mbe.xdelta uming.ttf umingmbe.ttf
Xdelta is available on http://www.xdelta.org or for Windows users on
IMPORTANT: Only use version 1.1.3, not newer ones, they won't work!
