Usage notes[edit]

When used as a radical component on the left, Japanese shinjitai and Korean Hanja use a compressed form of 糸 (with on the bottom, but the centre stroke in 小 is written without the bottom hook to distinguish the radical from the original character), as found in the Kangxi dictionary. In traditional Chinese (Hong Kong and Taiwan), the standard written form of the radical is (with three dots on the bottom), while the simplified Chinese form of the radical is written (with a line below that slants upwards).
