Directory language/chinese/zhlineskip



zhlineskip is a package for typesetting CJK documents. This package allows users to specify two ratios: One between the leading and the font size of the body text and the other between those of the footnote text. For Latin typography, these ratios usually range from 1.2 to 1.45, but they should be larger for CJK typography (usually from 1.5 to 1.67).

Although CJK text requires larger line spacing, maths formulae should follow the rules of Latin typography, since maths often consists of only Latin-based letters and symbols. The zhlineskip package is capable of restoring the maths leading to that of the Latin text.

Finally, it is possible to achieve the “Microsoft Word multiple line spacing” style using zhlineskip.


This package is a part of the C-kit project.

zhlineskip – Line spacing for CJK documents

This package supports typesetting CJK documents. It allows users to specify the two ratios between the leading and the font size of the body text and the footnote text. For CJK typesetting, these ratios usually range from 1.5 to 1.67. This package is also capable of restoring the math leading to that of the Latin text (usually 1.2 times the font size). Finally, it is possible to achieve the Microsoft Word multiple line spacing style using zhlineskip.
