GB18030(5)                FreeBSD File Formats Manual               GB18030(5)

NAME
     gb18030 - GB 18030 encoding method for Chinese text

SYNOPSIS
     ENCODING "GB18030"

DESCRIPTION
     The GB18030 encoding implements GB 18030-2000, a PRC national standard
     for the encoding of Chinese characters.  It is a superset of the older
     GB 2312-1980 and GBK encodings, and incorporates Unicode's Unihan
     Extension A completely.  It also provides code space for all Unicode 3.0
     code points.

     Multibyte characters in the GB18030 encoding can be one byte, two bytes,
     or four bytes long.  There are a total of over 1.5 million code
     positions.

     GB 11383-1981 (ASCII) characters are represented by single bytes in the
     range 0x00 to 0x7F.

     Chinese characters are represented as either two bytes or four bytes.
     Characters that are represented by two bytes begin with a byte in the
     range 0x81-0xFE and end with a byte either in the range 0x40-0x7E or
     0x80-0xFE.

     Characters that are represented by four bytes begin with a byte in the
     range 0x81-0xFE, have a second byte in the range 0x30-0x39, a third byte
     in the range 0x81-0xFE and a fourth byte in the range 0x30-0x39.
