Work on the Hán Nôm Coded Character Repertoire has been sustained by the Chino Cienega Foundation, the Neil A. McConnell Foundation, the Fertel Foundation, by Gabriella Karsch and Friends of Nôm in Pasadena, CA, and by many generous individuals, in particular, Mr. Donald L. Holley. We also thank Father Anthony Trần Văn Kiệm, Ms. Lê Mai Phương, and Dr. Lê Phạm Ngưng Hương for their special contributions to this edition.
Since our incorporation as a 501(c)3 nonprofit agency in 1999, the Vietnamese Nôm Preservation Foundation has endeavored to create computer tools to access the great heritage of Vietnamese writing in Nôm. We are pleased to join with the distinguished Vietnamese institute, the Viện Nghiên Cứu Hán Nôm, in the publication of this remarkable volume.
