Since You Ask. Korean character sets, like Chinese and Japanese ones, typically make use of their large space to include lots of dingbats. It's typical for there to be complete Greek and (modern Russian) Cyrillic alphabets embedded in them, for example. There are many such compatibility characters in Unicode that are there because Chinese, Japanes, or Korean characdter set standards include them. -- John Cowan I am a member of a civilization. --David Brin
