Should we have a specific note that this character is commonly used in Japan for books which are published in two parts? — Hippietrail 03:02, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

Good idea. I fixed it. Actually, I don't know which pronunciation of 下 is used in that case. I guessed (probably wrongly). Millie 03:44, 20 December 2005 (UTC)
It's not a good idea to guess since people use dictionaries as authorities. It's better to leave it out until somebody knows for sure. — Hippietrail 14:38, 20 December 2005 (UTC)
There seem to be two patterns: 上(じょう) and 下(げ) for a two-volume set, and 上(じょう), 中(ちゅう) and 下(げ) for a three-volume set. --Tohru 16:24, 20 December 2005 (UTC)
I only have one 3-volume set (paperback) in my collection and rather than and , it uses 第1部, 第2部, and 第3部. Any ideas? — Hippietrail 17:28, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

Links[edit]

Why are we getting rid of the romaji links? Millie 05:04, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

I don't know but I've spent quite a bit of time over the past couple of years dewikifying "Japanese" which everybody knows and wikifying "kanji" which only some people know. — Hippietrail 14:38, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

can longlists of'compounds' be hidden[edit]
