A-cai's valuable instructions on classifying Chinese words
The rs variable in the template is for the radical/stroke information of the first character. In this case [ 按时 ] we want the rs for 按. If you click on 按, you will find the information for rs near the top. It will look like:
Make sure to delete the + symbol so that you get 手06. Therefore, you should put rs=手06 in the template. This means that 按 is sorted under the 手 radical, with 6 remaining strokes (安 has a total of 6 strokes). The radical/stroke sort order is the most common sort order for traditional Chinese dictionaries, which is why we are using it for Categories that list words written in traditional characters. See Radical (Chinese character) for more information about radicals.
