another question...

from what i read here, formal japanese writing is from top to bottom, right to left.
So, if i want to write 世界の中心で、愛をさけぶ into 2 vertical lines, will this be correct?

愛 世
を 界
さ の
け 中
ぶ 心
  で
   、

is the placement of the comma in the right place?

The kana is called okurigana. Hopefully that will help you find your answer.

Doh...you're right niko. Okurigana is the kana after a kanji, like the い in 高い. Doh!

niko, I didn't even see that as a call out. I'm glad you corrected me before I led the person astray down the wrong path. Mr Green

I quickly searched the topic, and it seems possible using something called Ruby (not sure if it's a font). When I get more free time, I'll see what this does.

Yeah, there's a button in Microsoft Word (like the [I] button for italics or the [B] button for bold) called ルビ that will put furigana above the selected kanji.
I don't know if this option exists in the English version as I only have the Japanese version of Word.

And there is already a typing in Japanese thread, so I'm merging.

HTH,

i'm in MS Word (US ver) now and typing in japanese, but i cannot see the button you are talking about (it should be in the formatting toolbar). not that that means that function is not there, but it may be in some patch somewhere...

Okay. I just discovered how to do it in the English MS Word (2003, shouldn't matter I think). You would first type out the word in kanji. Then highlight the word, and choose Format->Asian Layout->Phonetic Guide and enter the kana in the Ruby Text section.

If you know the technology, you can infer your answers from this spec page from Sony Japan for one of their Vaios.

Minna, I'm not sure whether this is related to the thread:

I'm looking for a symbian software that can support japanese characters for my phone. Any suggestions?
