    Recently on the OpenType list, a question was asked about handling
    the differences between certain CJK punctuation within a single
    font for correctly displaying horizontal Japanese and Chinese text
    in the same file.

    John Hudson offered a solution for this issue.

    How do these differences apply to Unicode plain text and the
    Plane 14 tags? For example, it was noted that the ideographic full
    stop is centered in Chinese text but sits on the baseline (and isn't
    centered) in Japanese text.

    Without a plain text method of distinguishing the writing system
    for a run of text, a plain text file wouldn't be able to be
    correctly displayed if it had both Japanese and Chinese text.
    (Ideographic variants notwithstanding.)

    Best regards,

    James Kass.
