The Hán-Nôm Coded Character Set
Since our incorporation as a 501(C)3 nonprofit agency in 1999, the Vietnamese Nôm Preservation Foundation has endeavored to create computer tools to access the great heritage of Vietnamese writing in Nôm. Basic work on the Hán Nôm Coded Character Repertoire, with our Nôm Na Tống Light True Type font, the first of its kind, reached culmination with KHO CHỮ HÁN NÔM MÃ HOÁ, edited by Nguyễn Quang Hồng and Ngô Thanh Nhàn (Hanoi: © 2006 Viện Nghiên cứu Hán Nôm ,Việt Nam, and The Vietnamese Nôm Preservation Foundation, U.S.A.)
Our work on the Hán-Nôm Coded Character Set has been sustained by the Chino Cienega Foundation, the Neil A. McConnell Foundation, the Fertel Foundation, and by many generous individuals, in particular, Mr. Donald L. Holley. We also thank Father Anthony Trần Văn Kiệm, Ms.Lê Mai Phương, and Dr. Lê Phạm Ngưng Hương for their special contributions to this long endeavor.
Screw the fate that makes you share a man.
