- Actually, talking about Chinese characters... I don't know if it'll survive, but i got this message (which i am now responding to) with a random hanzi in it! Third line from the top of Florian's paragraph, the first word is (at least on my screen) "r{hanzi}amier". Having only taken 2 semesters of Japanese, i don't recognize it (also it's pretty small), but it uses the 'door'(?) radical you find in "hear", and then inside it there's something that looks like the one Japanese uses for the |sei| in |sensei| (teacher) and |gakusei| (student), except without the little smitchik on the upper-left. It may have a little smitchik in the lower right part. -Stephen (Steg) "gojira no musuko wha watashi o tabeta yo."
