In zhuyin fuhao (bopomofo), "ㄧ" is equal to "i" or "yi" in hanyu pinyin. I have noticed, when displayed on my computer, even with very complete fonts, I see a vertical line (similar to "|"), but when I see a picture of this symbol (e.g. see here: http://www.omniglot.com/writing/zhuyin.htm), I see a horizontal line (similar to "一").
- Does this symbol have two forms? When are they used?
- What is the correct direction for this when writing horizontal text? Vertical or horizontal?
- Is my computer turning it the wrong direction if I see a "|" (vertical line) when typing horizontal text?
- If horizontal is correct, how do I type it horizontal?
