Description: "WenQuanYi Zen Hei" The first open-source Chinese font for Hei Ti
The WenQuanYi Zen Hei is the first open-source Chinese font
for Hei Ti, a sans-serif font style that are widely used for
general purpose Chinese text formatting, and on-screen
display of Chinese characters (such as in Windows Vista and MacOS).
Simple and elegant font outlines and slightly emboldened strokes
makes the glyphs presenting higher contrast and therefore easy
to read. The unique style of this font also provide a simple
interface for adding grid-fitting information for further
fine-tuning of the on-screen performance.
WenQuanYi Zen Hei contains arguably the largest number of Chinese
Hanzi glyphs of all known open-source outline Chinese fonts: it has
20194 Hanzi glyphs covering 97% of the Unicode CJK Unified
Ideographics . This font provides full coverage to the required
code points for zh_cn, zh_sg, zh_tw, zh_hk and zh_mo locales. The
total vector glyphs in this font is 35206 including over 10,000
Hanguls, Japanese kanas, Latin characters and symbols from many
The primary purpose of developing this font is to provide CJK
(Chinese-Japanese-Korean) users a visually pleasing, standard
compliant, platform independent and compact solution for displaying
and printing Chinese on their computers.
This package has dropped the embedded bitmap font out.
