Development of pan-CJK fonts

By Jürgen Willrodt. The development of fonts which are usable and acceptable in different countries using CJK ideograms in Asia requires the usage of multiple locale glyph variants for different countries. We discuss the technical requirements for such a font, the different options for implementation and the production process using the Ikarus font production system. We show as an example the integration of different CJK locales into our Nimbus Global font family. From the 2012 ATypI conference in Hong Kong.
