A Taiwanese character set for scholars. Its 48,711 characters, 48,027 of which are hanzi are contained in 7 planes, each of which is a 94x94 matrix. Although its name stands for Chinese National Standard, CNS is a rarely used character set and even the few applications that support it only display the first two planes, whose hanzi are also found in Big5.
Extended Unix Code for Traditional Chinese, an 8-bit encoding form of single-byte ASCII and multi-byte CNS 11643-1992. It uses two code sets to encode CNS:
This is what each byte stands for in Code Set 2:
1st = code set: 0x8E 2nd = plane: 0xA1-0xA7 3rd = row: 0xA1-0xFE 4th = cell: 0xA1-0xFE
If you are using Mozilla, Netscape or Opera then you can decode the text in the right column by selecting Chinese Traditional (EUC-TW) in View : Character Coding, or View : Encoding. Click here if you cannot.
