Default: Unicode
_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".
CJK Unicode font Ming style

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 <arne@linux.org.tw> 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:
CNS 11643

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!
