I'm giving a lecture about the I Ching and I'm looking for the Chinese Hexagram characters. Does anybody know where I can get these? Thanks.

Hi, Frank:

If you need the Unicode six-line symbols are here:

http://www.alanflavell.org.uk/unicode/unidata4D.html

If you see there boxes with almost illegible characters and numbres you will nedd an extension for the Unicode font in your PC.

Can see here which extension your PC lacks:

Fonts and Compatibility

In order to view the Chinese text on this site, you will need to have a Chinese font and compatible web browser installed. In addition, because the ancient texts on this site incorporate many now obsolete and rarely-used characters, you will need to install a Unicode font which provides support for such characters (often referred to as CJK Extension A and CJK Extension B). A suitable (and highly recommended) font is the freely downloadable "Han Nom" font. Microsoft's "Simsun Founder Extended" also includes many (though not all) of the required characters. To confirm whether your system properly supports these characters, please see the Font test page. Proper support for Unicode (including so-called 'surrogates') is also needed, which may cause additional problems for users with older versions of Windows.

Hi, Frank:

Be aware that Yellowbridge brings Big5 characters and uses intead of wu , meaning "-less / not to have / no / none / not / to lack / un- ". Ex.: 25 無妄 wu wang instead of .25 无妄

The original character is not in big5, some versions in Big5 uses another character with an aditional stroke whose meaning is quite different.

is available in Unicode with no extension font.

Yours,


Charly
