comment Which fonts show the stroke order of all characters?
You can also get to this by expanding the characters in the word dictionary it seems.

Stroke orders do differ even when characters are the same between regions: See 必http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stroke_order#Stroke_order_per_polity

comment What is the meaning of 真是的
I certainly know all the characters here, and mdgb gives me the translation I would expect for the three together like this. In the example context though, I really couldn't even guess at the meaning. I did a search on 你真是的! and found this thread: chinese-forums.com/index.php?/topic/… indicating that it's often used as an expression of annoyance like "You're really ... " with the end omitted.

I looked at that page before posting, but it's far beyond my current level.

@StumpyJoePete, I haven't had time to do research on alternative services. If you have a good link, I'd be happy to throw that up, otherwise I'll try to do that this weekend.

comment What is that use of 得?
What dictionary are you using to look up words? I really like MDGB as it seems it does a very good job of picking the correct word boundaries.

comment 回去回来 回来回去 来来回回 来来去去 Are they the same?
I couldn't find either in a dictionary, although I did find a lot of other really interesting chengyu. My friend who told me that one of those was an idiom is a poor Mandarin speaker and certainly seemed uncertain about it herself. I suspect she might have been thinking of 来回来去 or 转来转去.
