comment Is this a Chinese Proverb?
Can you provide more info and context? I searched the translated version by @NS.X, but I did not find any origin either. I haven't heard of such a proverb in Chinese, but I can give you a similar proverb in Japanese. >聞くは一時の恥 聞かぬは一生の恥 >Asking is a shame in a while, while not asking is a shame in all your life

Hi, welcome to this site! As for your question, I've suffered it too, but the moderator Alenanno gave me a good solution-just use the html tag <Strong>words</Strong> to make the words in bold.

@BertR It's very kind of you to improve my answer. Of course I don't mind, instead, I want to say "thank you". Sorry for my late reply. I am very busy.

comment What is the difference between 试验 and 实验?
Anyone can propose a question here even he knows the answer already, as long as the question can benefit the community. This site is a little quiet now and I think more such questions are welcomed,at least in my opinion.

@Claw Actually, by the national standard in China, you should not say "摄氏零度", though I have heard some people say it that way. "摄氏度" is one unit as a whole and should not be devided.

comment Why in China do they use k instead of m for the slope of a line?
