Topic: Font Widths - CJK Fonts

I am working with CJK Fonts in PDF. In the Descendant fonts entry for
the FONT Dictionary we get a W entry which gives the widths of the
characters. Can someone help me as to how these widths are correctly
picked for a particular character since I cannot find out the proper
mapping of the character to the corresponding width entry.
Example - I have a content stream which consist of Japanese character
codes. When I convert these into proper CID values as per the encoding
I get numbers which are very large as compared to the ones given in the
W array entry. In fact the numbers are way beyond the range specified
in the W entry. So how does the mapping into the W array happen ??
Thanks and Regards
