comment What is na4zi4pang2 (pinyin) in the decomposition of na4 (那)?
@Stan Exactly because 冄 is (was) a standalone character, it would have been called 冄字旁, like all the other radicals that are also characters. The name 那字旁 implies it is referring to a non-character component.

comment What is na4zi4pang2 (pinyin) in the decomposition of na4 (那)?
@Stan Because I couldn't find any reference to support that, and I don't possess the expert knowledge to disambiguate when there is neither reference for it nor against it.

I did as you suggested, to provide an answer that strictly speaks to the question. You've already got all the information you needed from the comments and @Stan's answer, but precision questioning and answering is a good thing to maintain for Q/A sites:)

@susisstrolch But that radical is not a character. It would be great if there is a Unicode character for it.

comment How to come from 二百五 to 二百九?
@susisstrolch People are asking where did you see/hear 二百九 at the first place, which can help us help you find the answer. As a native speaker and active internet user I have never heard of it.

comment Request for a 成语 to describe a person with all of 貌, 才, and 德
I am almost sure there is no 成语 that explicitly covers all these three qualities. You can always make up phrases for that purpose, but it requires high language proficiency to do it right.

Na4zi4pang2 is Pinyin for '那字旁', literally 'the radical from 那'. I don't think there is a Unicode character for this radical.

comment Refreshing and bubbly
@QuestionOverflow Good suggestion, I'll think about phrasing and update later. 清新 or 清凉 are some properties (most likely flavor or taste) of a refreshing drink, but not 'refreshing' itself.
