The spec uses the correct codepoints in the example, it's
just that the font does not make this very obvious. I've
changed the spec to specify MS Gothic, which will make it
more obvious for those systems that have it installed. I'm
not familiar enough with other CJK fonts to know if there
are other appropriate options that are commonly installed
on Linux/Mac/Windows systems.
