- GB2312 encoding method for Chinese text
encoding implements GB 2312-1980, a PRC national standard
for the encoding of simplified Chinese characters.
Multibyte characters in the GB2312
encoding can be one byte or two bytes long.
characters are represented by single bytes in the range 0x00 to 0x7F.
Simplified Chinese characters are represented by two bytes, both in
the range 0xA1-0xFE.
encoding is believed to be compatible with GB 2312-1980.
This standard has been superseded by GB 18030-2000, but is still
in wide use.
