      The UDC raster font format consists of a character index and character
      pattern.

      The code area and the maximum number of characters depend upon the
      device and the language.	The size of the fonts depend upon the merged
      font file and the device.

    Character Index
      The character index consists of  a 4- or 5-digit code.  According to
      the languese, the following codes can be used:

	   __________________________________
	   |	 Language	|    Code    |
	   |____________________|____________|
	   |Japanese		| KU-TEN     |
	   |Korean		| Row&Column |
	   |Simplified Chinese	| HP-15	     |
	   |Traditional Chinese | HP-15	     |
	   |____________________|____________|

      For KU-TEN code, the 2- or 3-digit KU code and 2-digit TEN code, i.e.
      4- or 5-digit code is used. There are two pattern format as following.
      Note 1KU ~ 120KU are valid for JIS X 0208, and 1KU ~ 94KU are for JIS
      X 0212.

	   |Character Index example |				  |

	   |________________________|_____________________________|

      For Row&Column code, the 4-digit decimal code is used.  The code is
      contained in brackets in this form: [1601].

      For HP-15 code, the alphanumeric 0x precedes the 4-digit hexadecimal
      code as in 0x889F.
