This is one of the benefits of both working at Adobe Systems and  
having Acrobat's ear. ;-)

The Adobe-{CNS1,GB1,Japan1,Korea1}-UCS2 files are the "ToUnicode"  
mapping files, and are among the Acrobat mapping files that we are  
discussing. They are a special case of the Acrobat mapping files in  
that they specifically map CIDs to character codes, specifically  
UTF-16BE, in a unidirectional manner.
