Abstract

This article describes a post process program for Unicode Han hand-writing system to pick up or throw away a valid or an invalid ITAI-JI (Japanese Kanji variant) candidate with referring locale dependent ITAI-JI information. This post process works after the glyph based pattern matching algorithm in the hand-writing system generates the candidates list. The locale based ITAI-JI information may be dynamically coupled with this hand-writing software based on the run-time setting.

An Approach to Avoid Mis-Input of ITAI-JI for Unicode Han Hand-Writing
System

   This article describes a post process program for Unicode
Han hand-writing system to pick up or throw away a valid or an
invalid ITAI-JI (Japanese Kanji variant) candidate with referring
locale dependent ITAI-JI information.  This post process works after
the glyph based pattern matching algorithm in the hand-writing system
generates the candidates list.  The locale based ITAI-JI information
may be dynamically coupled with this hand-writing software based on
the run-time setting.

   This Unicode Han handwriting system carries the following
knowledges in a table format and refers them in the post process.

   * ITAI-JI pairs of which old days shape character is
unified to its modern shape character in the end user locale
character set, but both of old days and modern shape characters
exist in Unicode Han character set.  (e.g. ' ' a an old days shape
and ' ' as a modern shape for an ideographic character meaning
'Surprised!' in Shift-JIS end user locale character set.)

   * ITAI-JI pairs of which both old days and modern shape
characters exist in the end user locale character set, and also in
Unicode Han character set, too.  (e.g. ' ' as an old days shape and '
' as a modern shape for an ideographic character meaning Japanese
naghtingale in Shift-JIS end user locale character set.)

   A flow chart of this post process program is shown in the
next page.  When only old days shape chara...
