NAME
     gb2312 -- GB2312 encoding method for Chinese text

SYNOPSIS
     ENCODING "GB2312"

DESCRIPTION
     The GB2312	encoding implements GB 2312-1980, a PRC	national standard for
     the encoding of simplified	Chinese	characters.

     Multibyte characters in the GB2312	encoding can be	one byte or two	bytes
     long.  GB 11383-1981 (ASCII) characters are represented by	single bytes
     in	the range 0x00 to 0x7F.	 Simplified Chinese characters are represented
     by	two bytes, both	in the range 0xA1-0xFE.

SEE ALSO

STANDARDS
     The GB2312	encoding is believed to	be compatible with GB 2312-1980.  This
     standard has been superseded by GB	18030-2000, but	is still in wide use.
