comment Dot vs. slash in Chinese computer fonts
You can pretty much ignore the taiwanese standard. It's made by overpaid bureaucrats who try to push their false ideas of pseudo-ethymologic writing onto the people using their standards. It's horrible as it neither follows the classic Kangxi conventions nor current practice at all.

comment Dot vs. slash in Chinese computer fonts
@Chris The point is, people don't want to learn another shape-based method after they have learned one. You cannot be both forgiveful and strict.

comment Dot vs. slash in Chinese computer fonts
@Chris Being forgiving is not good, not even for learning. It stops people from memorizing correct sequences because they can continue to use wrong sequences. The brain needs a rejection impulse to understand that it did something incorrect. Allowing people to input slightly wrong combinations makes it much harder for the brain to pick up what is right and what is wrong.

comment Teaching Pinyin and Characters together vs Teaching Pinyin then Characters
Uh... I had them as well. They were awful. The problem is that they tried teaching chinese by letting the student memorize phrases and static constructs, which is not a good way to learn a language IMHO. One should focus on teaching ways to compose sentences with context and flexibility and not cardboard-cutouts.

Your answer gives absolutely no information to me. Please elaborate on "Chinese format standards". My question is about "what is the formatting standard?" and you answer: Use the formatting standard...

Thank you for the explanative answer! Do you also know any resources on traditional Chinese?

comment How can one determine the radical for a given character?
Another important aspect are characters that have uncommon radicals such as 鬱 where the radical is ­鬯 (chàng, ritual wine). Actually, besides 鬯 itself, 鬱 is the only character that uses this radical.

comment Why in China do they use k instead of m for the slope of a line?
In Europe, we usually use y = ax+b.

BTW, the traditional writing is 乾隆御製, 禦 is only used for the meaning of "defend".

comment How did 葉 (leaf as in vegetation) become 叶 when it was simplified?
Most simplifications do not follow any rule. If you want to see even stranger simplifications, google for 二简字.
