<character> In internationalisation, a collective term for Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.
These languages all share the fact that their writing systems are based partly on Han characters (i.e., "hanzi" or "kanji"), which are complex enough of a system to require 16-bit character encodings.
CJK character encodings should consist minimally of Han characters plus language-specific phonetic scripts such as pinyin, bopomofo, hiragana, hangul, etc.
CJKV is CJK plus Vietnamese.
