The GBK code input method uses the GBK code defined by the Chinese Internal Code Specification. This method includes all of the Chinese characters and symbols in GB2312-80, and other CJK Chinese characters in GB 13000-1. Each Chinese character or symbol is identified by a four-hexadecimal digital internal code defined in the Chinese Internal Code Specification.
