I always wondered whether Chinese fantasy writers invent characters ...
I've heard that if you know the shape and sequence of the strokes, you
can uniquely(?) identify a kanji, because of the sequence rules; that
implies that you could thus encode a corpus of kanji, and use a Markov
process to generate new ones. Has it been done?
