Have been learning Chinese for about 10 years now. Although I get to practice every day with my wife and family, I am still only average.

Where I live is about 80% Chinese speakers so I have plenty of people to practice with and it's like living in China without actually being there.

comment Dot vs. slash in Chinese computer fonts
If it needs to be human readable then I agree with Stan's answer below. You are going to have a hard time because fonts are just fonts, you are not going to be able to tell the difference in some cases just by looking at a character.

comment Dot vs. slash in Chinese computer fonts
By requesting a font it seems to be that you are requesting something that would be human readable rather than taking this information from a database, why is this the requirement? I haven't been able to track down an open source database which has this information but there are sites like zdic.net/z/14/js/4E0B.htm which show the breakdown of a character under the section 笔顺 but they don't appear to have an API.

But there is a standard right, even if it differentiates from convention?

Can you please confirm if you mean 姓 or 女生. Can you also edit your question to show a problem that is not answered by a standard dictionary. If you are having a particular problem that cannot be answered by a dictionary please edit your question and then use "flag" to request a moderator to review.

comment How to come from 二百五 to 二百九?
Hi susis, what does "I have to add up 三八 and 二 to it to obtain 二百九", I don't understand what this means. I don't see how you are comparing 三八 to 二百九?
