The "Xiandai Hanyu changyong zibiao" is for Simplified Chinese only, and Traditional Chinese characters are not part of the List itself. The Traditional Chinese equivalents given on Wikisource (see link below) are for reference purposes.

Some characters have multiple pronunciations. In this case only the commonly used one or ones are given.

Many characters have multiple meanings or shades of meaning not easily conveyable in English with only a few words. The English equivalents given are not intended to be exhaustive or perfectly accurate.
