Character Set for Japanese

RICOH offers the following Japanese font character sets.

Local Code Total:
The number of characters allocated by JIS/Shift_JIS.
Unicode Total:
The number of characters allocated by Unicode (UTF-16).
When the same character types overlap, the character count is based on the Unicode at the upper level.
For example, “√”is included in both JIS X 0208 (Non-Kanji) and NEC special characters at CP932 but is allotted to different local codes.
However, since only one Unicode is assigned to a single character, the Unicode of JIS X 0208 (Non-Kanji) is counted, while that of NEC special characters is not.
Since there are ten overlapping characters in the NEC Special characters, there are ten less number of Unicodes compared to that of the local codes.
Vertical Writing Character Total:
The number of characters for vertical writing with the same Unicodes as those for horizontal writing.
Toal Characters:
