Japanese Radicals font

Derived from Source Han Sans, Japanese Radicals is a small (54KB), custom font (JapaneseRadicals-Regular.otf) with full support all Japanese radicals and their variants (321 characters). EOT, TTF, SVG and WOFF versions of the font can be found in the webfonts sub-directory.

To improve compatability with legacy encodings in existing files Japanese Radicals includes all the glyphs in the Unicode Kangxi Radicals (U+2F00..U+2FDF) and CJK Radicals Supplement (U+2E80..U+2EFF) character ranges as well as a small number of Han ideographs. The remaining 60 radical glyphs not available in Unicode were encoded in the Private Use Area range U+E700..U+E759.

Also included is a PDF file which lists the radicals present in the font, their encodings, stroke numbers, meanings, readings and positions (a CSV version is included in the language-data directory on this repository). A PNG image illustrates the 60 custom glyphs added by us. The Japanese Radicals font can be viewed in use on the Kanji alive website.
