Microsoft JhengHei (微軟正黑體 in Chinese) is a typeface designed for typesetting the Chinese language in the Traditional Chinese script. It is a “gothic” (sans serif) style with little to no contrast between thick and thin strokes. It is designed to be clear and readable onscreen using ClearType font technology.
Microsoft JhengHei UI is a version of the typeface that has been optimized for use in user interfaces, with alternate character design.
Microsoft JhengHei was designed by China Type Design Limited. It has three weights, Light, Regular, and Bold, with no italic styles. In addition to Traditional Chinese characters, the font includes Japanese hiragana and katakana, bopomofo, telegraph month symbols, numerals and characters in circles and parentheses, and a variety of other symbols, as well as capitals and lowercase letters for the Latin, Greek, and Cyrillic alphabets, derived from the Segoe typeface.
