"AR PL UMing" is a high-quality Chinese Unicode TrueType font collection
(uming.ttc) derieved from the original "AR PL Mingti2L Big5" and
"AR PL SungtiL GB" fonts generously provided by Arphic Technology
to the Free Software community under the "Arphic Public License".
It has been extended from the original "AR PL Mingti2L Big5" and
"AR PL SungtiL GB" fonts with additional glyphs now covering
ISO8859-1,2,3,4,9,10,13,14,15, BIG5, GB2312-80 and HKSCS-2004.
It also includes Bopomofo Extensions for Hakka and Minnan according
to the Unicode 5.0 standard and their MBE variants.
Support for CNS 11643, GBK, GB 18030, Japanese and Korean is under heavy
Users who need more Han glyphs than provided by GB2312 and Big5 or who need
support for Chinese minority languages may want to install this font package.
This font also includes Firefly's bitmap characters for better rendering in
small fontsizes (Big5 and GB2312 only).
This font is an alternative to the fonts-arphic-bsmi00lp and
fonts-arphic-gbsn00lp font packages.

Thanks to Radu Stoica. Closes: #687043

(FontConfig warns these are not supported).
