CJK typography they never taught you

Punctuation

  • Why underlines are not visual formatting
  • The honorific full-width space
  • The traditional CJK pilcrow

Layout

  • The fullwidth space as a basic typographic unit
  • The honorific line break
  • Honorific outdents
  • The standard paragraph indent
  • Beyond kinsokushori
  • Vertical CJK text that runs from left to right

Standards gone wrong

Punctuation

Mere semantics

Mistranslations and misunderstandings

  • CJK, ME, and “Asian”
  • What are italics?
