CJK Symbols and Punctuation is the name of a range of characters in the

Unicode character encoding standard.

This block encodes punctuation marks and symbols used primarily by writing systems that employ Han ideographs. Most of the standards are found in East Asian coding standards.

U+3000 ideographic space is provided for compatibility with legacy character sets. It is a fixed-width space appropriate for use with an ideographic font. U+301C 〜 wave dash
and
U+3030 〰 wavy dash
are special forms of dashes found in East Asian standards.

U+3005 々 ideographic iteration mark is used to stand for the second of a pair of identical ideographs occurring in adjacent positions within a document.

U+3006 〆 ideographic closing mark is used frequently on signs to indicate that a store or booth is closed for business. The Japanese pronunciation is *shime*, most often encountered in the compound *shime-kiri*

U+3013 〓 geta mark
is used to indicate the presence of, or to hold a place for, an ideograph that is not available when a document is printed.

U+303E 〾 ideographic variation indicator
is a graphic character that is to be rendered visibly. It alerts the user that the intended character is similar to, but not equal to, the character that follows. It is similar to the geta mark, but partially identifies the missing character.

Unicode's

CJK Symbols and Punctuation code block reserves the

64 code points from U+3000 to U+303F, of which all 64 are currently assigned.
