Code Table East Asian Punctuation Marks

December 2007

This table contains 25 mappings of character encodings for East Asian punctuation marks from the East Asian Coded Character set (ANSI/NISO Z39.64, or "EACC") to character encodings in the Universal Character Set (UCS, ISO-IEC 10646)/Unicode. Character codes are given in hexadecimal notation. Each character is presented on a separate row. The first column contains the MARC-8 EACC 24-bit code (in hex), the second column contains the corresponding UCS/Unicode 16-bit (in hex) code, the third column contains the UTF-8 code (in hex) for the UCS character, the fourth column contains a representation of the character (where possible), the fifth column contains a character name or description. NOTE: The character IDEOGRAPHIC NUMBER ZERO (EACC 212F30, UCS/Unicode 3007) is not included in this table. It is listed in the mapping table for East Asian Ideographs.

Not all characters display in all browsers. We have attempted to allow for font families that show each character set, but you must have one of these fonts on your computer. See the W3C site for a discussion of fonts:
