Microsoft YaHei (in Chinese: 微软雅黑; pinyin: Wēiruǎn Yǎhēi) is a sans-serifgothictypeface created by Founder Electronics and Monotype Corporation under commission from Microsoft. Hinting for the font was undertaken by Monotype Imaging.[1] The CJK ideographic characters were designed by the Founder Electronics foundry's senior designer, Li Qi (齐立).[2][3]


Development began in 2004 when Microsoft commissioned Beijing Founder Electronics Co., Ltd. for a ClearType font for use in the simplified Chinese version of Windows Vista as default font.[4]

The ideographs in YaHei were based on a previous sans-serif font family the same designer had made in the early 1990s which, like YaHei, did not feature flared stroke terminals. Changes to the prototype fonts include redesigning the hook stroke with a longer end, the addition of 'foot' ending stroke terminal, readjusting the black and white proportions of glyphs, the introduction of dents in stroke path outlines that intersect other stroke path outlines, and flattening the diagonal dot stroke top at the top of the glyph. YaHei is optimized for screen use.[5]

Microsoft YaHei[edit]

The font family originally includes two fonts in regular and bold weights: named MSYH.TTF and 'Microsoft YaHei Bold' in a separate file, MSYHBD.TTF. OpenType features include vertical writing.
