CJK Symbols and Punctuation is a Unicode block containing symbols and punctuation used for writing the Chinese, Japanese and Korean languages.

Notes
1.^ As of Unicode version 12.0

The block has variation sequences defined for East Asian punctuation positional variants.[1][2] They use U+FE00 VARIATION SELECTOR-1 (VS01) and U+FE01 VARIATION SELECTOR-2 (VS02):

Variation sequences for punctuation alignment
U+ 3001 3002 Description

base + VS01 、︀ 。︀ corner-justified form
base + VS02 、︁ 。︁ centered form

Emoji[edit]

The CJK Symbols and Punctuation block contains two emoji: U+3030 and U+303D.[3][4]

The block has four standardized variants defined to specify emoji-style (U+FE0F VS16) or text presentation (U+FE0E VS15) for the two emoji, both of which default to a text presentation.[5]

History[edit]

In Unicode 1.0.1, two changes were made to this block in order to make Unicode 1.0.1 a proper subset of ISO 10646:[6][7][8]


The following Unicode-related documents record the purpose and process of defining specific characters in the CJK Symbols and Punctuation block:
