Post Chinese Gov't Can't deal with Rare Chinese Characters

World Briefing | Asia: China: Limits On Names For Newborns

NYTimes
Published: March 18, 2006
The Ministry of Public Security is planning new regulations on name registration because the government's computer database for new electronic identity cards for China's 1.3 billion people does not contain thousands of uncommon characters, state media reported. ''We cannot handwrite rare characters on the cards like we did before,'' The China Daily quoted Bao Suixian, a ministry official, as saying. There is a tradition of naming children with a rare Chinese character; ancient poems are a popular source. Chinese computer databases often contain fewer than 27,000 Chinese characters, while the Kangxi Dictionary from 1716, the authority on the language, contains 50,000 characters.

Comments: You'd think that having fewer people with the same name would be good for the police as it would create less confusion in tracking people. What software are they running that they can't handle Unicode 4.0?

Perhaps they should asked SEDO for help on this one.

SEDO apparently to make their system work have to input every conceivable character, so they should be close to have the whole set by now!
