Vonwaon Bitmap Font
A downloadable font pack
Vonwaon Bitmap Font is a free Chinese pixel font released into public domain under CC0 1.0 license.
The moulds are based on the open source project BitmapFont. Tweaks have been made to optimize mixed usage of glyphs of different scripts, sizes, and type faces.
There are two variations available in the pack: 12px and 16px (9pt and 12pt accordingly). They are named after the pixel height of their primary mould. The TTF fonts look best when used in sizes that are multiples of that size.
There are 7543 glyphs in total, including 6763 Chinese characters. A Lite version is available, in case where file size matters, which has 4041 glyphs, including 3755 Chinese characters (second level Chinese characters are not included). Glyphs of Japanese Kana, Greek alphabet, Russian alphabet, Pinyin, Bopomofo, box-drawing characters, and enclosed alphanumeric characters are not included in the Lite version.
You're free to use the font in any project. There's no need to ask permission before using these. Giving attribution is not required, but is greatly appreciated :)
凤凰点阵体是免费的中文像素字体，使用 CC0 1.0 协议发布，属于公有领域。
压缩包中有 12px 和 16px 两个版本的字体（对应 9pt 和 12pt），这是它们各自所使用的基准字模的像素高度。字号设置为对应尺寸的整数倍时，TTF 字体的显示效果最佳。
凤凰点阵体共包含 7543 个字符，其中汉字 6763 个。如果你非常在乎文件大小，可以使用 Lite 版，共包含 4041 个字符，其中汉字 3755 个（省略了较少使用的二级汉字）。Lite 版不包含日文假名、希腊字母、俄文字母、拼音、注音符号、制表字符、以及序号字符。

This project is based on BitmapFont, which is licensed under GPL3. So, I was wondering why this is licensed under CC0. Thanks!
I believe BitmapFont only GPLs the C++ program that parses the HZK*/ASC* data. The glyph data included in that project is collected from microcontrollers and DOS-era softwares. It’s known that companies at that era often use these data directly. However, since there is no clear copyright owner of these data, I think if you have strict requirements, you have to avoid projects using HZK*/ASC*.
and the HZK seems to be a national standard.
