Thank you *very much* for this update. And I apologize for having been upset.

(For convenience, the ‘han’ script in Emacs is set up to support all of the 
Chinese, Japanese, and Korean, a.k.a. CJK, characters, not just Chinese 

Does that mean that as far as emacs is concerned han also covers hiragana, 
katakana, bopomofo and various CJK symbols ? If that's the case, why did my 
first attempt when I specified 'han produced non-satisfactory results (the font 
applied to the Chinese characters by not to the kanas) but when I specified a 
given Japanese character set with the same font I got the expected result ?
