the input method is a big issue. i have no chinese support on my phone and i dont plan to have.the input from computer with a tool like NJstar is not impressive: we have to type the phonetically irrelevant words, this could make a mess in one's head.may be we need a software which will convert latin-based tp or 2-letter codes to hanzi. may be menue-driven interface could be helpful if we arrange the words into suitable groups, 5-10 words per group and 16-20 groups represented by buttons/icons, arranged 4x4 or 4x5

Going through either set of board jigglings and adding the need then to retranslate the result into tp just about ruins the whole scheme (lovely as it is) for me. Even a 12 x 12 matrix with tp words in the nodes and a punch character producer would be less effective than just that same matrix and sending two dodecimal numerals for each word -- and that (by saving steps) is less appealing that the two letter codes for tp, which doesn't appeal at all.
Still is pretty, though.

A touch screen app would be handy for this sort of typing though.
but we need a special input method anywayjan Josan wrote:犭-I thought of this and it would be my choice, but it's hard to produce as it's not in many input methods.
only a few % suggest this. for russians the material wealth is associated with real estate.$- Someone in Russia suggests "$" should represent material wealth? What is this world coming to?
