comment Various ways to say “nice to meet you”
Yeah, 很高兴见到您 is used when you know or heard of someone for a long time, but it's the first time you actually see the person. For example, if you are meeting someone you know from the internet. It's a bit weird to say 很高兴见到您 to someone you know well or see everyday.

comment What is a good technique for remembering tones?
不 should be 2nd tone. Edit: sorry didn't see you said "The tones obviously indicate the tones of the single characters, it doesn't take into account the tone changes in spoken Mandarin."

@Huang Usually vote-up and vote-down should be a pair. What would you use for vote-up if you use 叉 for vote-down? Maybe 勾? :)
