Unihan Database

Ed./Corp.: Unicode, Inc.
URL.: http://www.unicode.org/charts/unihan.html
Language: English.

Self description: "[...] database of information regarding the CJK
Unified Ideographs (Unihan) which are a part of the Unicode Standard,
Version 4.0. This database originated with data provided by Research
Libraries Group, Xerox, Taligent, and Apple. Chinese and Japanese
compound data presented in the on-line database come from the on-line
CEDICT and Jim Breen's EDICT projects. These additional data are not
available in the text-file version. There are also two indices for the
index, a grid index grouping the characters in blocks of 256 and a
radical-stroke index. A search page is also available. Individual
characters can be accessed through the index or via the "Lookup" button
and text field above. Enter the four- or five-digit hexadecimal
identifier for the character, and click "Lookup." You will be taken to
an information page for the character. [...]"

Description: The Unihan Database page is part of the Unicode.org website
and provides access to all CJKV (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese)
characters of the Unicode Standard, currently (20040627) in version 4.0.
Although the "Lookup" function only searches for UTF32 code points,
there is a "Unihan Search Page" available at
http://www.unicode.org/charts/unihansearch.html, that also allows to
search for the english definitions and modern "Mandarin" prononciation
with tones (i.e. zhong1). It is also possible to browse the characters
database using the "Unihan Grid Index" or the "Unihan Radical-stroke
Index" (both still based on the Unicode Standard, v.3.1). [Especially
browsing the character lists can become time-consuming, as all
characters are displayed as small linked graphics.]

Contents: (1) Contents (About the Unihan database, The complete Unihan
database); (2) Unihan Database (Unihan Grid Index, Unihan Radical-stroke
Index, Unihan Search Page, Full list of Unihan Tags); (3) Related Links
(Code Charts (PDF Version), Unicode Character Names Index, The Unicode
Standard, Version 4.0).
