CJK Compatibility is the name of a range of characters in the Unicode character encoding standard.

CJK squared Katakana words are Katakana-spelled words that fill a single display cell or em-square when intermixed with CJK ideographs. Likewise, squared Latin abbreviation symbols are designed to fill a single character position when mixed with CJK ideographs.

These characters are provided solely for compatibility with existing character encoding standards, including KS C 5601, CNS 11643 and various company registries. Modern software can supply an infinite repertoire of Kana-spelled words or squared abbreviations on the fly.

Japanese era names refer to these dates :

  • U+337B     Heisei   1989-01-07 to present
  • U+337C     Showa   1926-12-24 to 1989-01-06
  • U+337D     Taisho   1912-07-29 to 1926-12-23
  • U+337E     Meiji   1867 to 1912-07-28

Unicode's CJK Compatibility code block reserves the 256 code points from U+3300 to U+33FF, of which all 256 are currently assigned.

Enclosed CJK Letters and Months <-- CJK Compatibility --> CJK Unified Ideographs Extension A

Number of characters added in each version of the Unicode standard :

The columns below should be interpreted as :

  1. The Unicode code for the character
  2. The character in question
  3. The Unicode name for the character
  4. The Unicode Bidirectional Category for the character
  5. The Unicode version when this character was added
