Information on Korean Writing.

Korean is generally written to the KS code standard and contains approximately 8200 characters. That includes characters taken from Chinese, but nowadays Korean is usually written with 2350 hangul. The hangul can stand alone or be combined to form compound characters. Korean is also a double-byte language.

Korean is written with the same orientation as English. Unlike Chinese and Japanese, Korean is written much like English - broken into separate words with spaces between. However care is required not to put a space in the wrong place as this can easily corrupt a character. Software that has been localized for Korean will normally ensure that the hangul are correctly entered.
