Happy New Year! Good Luck and Prosperity in the Year Of The Tiger!
新年好!   恭喜发财!   萬事如意! 虎年!


Let us hope this Year of the Tiger is better than the last Year of the Ox! Restrictions on family gatherings have eased here, so Reunion Dinner was a bit more festive than last year. Back home, of course, the annual Chūnyůn migration is still heavily curtailed by government restrictions on travel. Here's hoping too that the governments of my birthplace and my adopted home manage their relations more sensibly and productively in the coming year. :-\
I'm sorry I've been so inactive here, but you are in my thoughts.

Akima: I have noticed than on certain sites the fonts are much more readable, traditional or simplified; Japanese, ROC or PRC.

Did you have trouble reading the characters in my posting?

I was browsing some website where they had some really easy to read traditional fonts where the curves (it was not the fact that they were traditional, they just flowed more normally)  -- for a Bulgarian person, at least. I'm afraid I don't remember it. I think it was ROC. The hanzi were just much more easier to read. The font just flowed.

Have you tried using a different theme?  The fonts used might be different.

Well, there are many different fonts for writing Chinese, some of which are more "cursive" than others. In my annual New Year greeting image I employ some more "brush" style fonts. However, when it comes to typing in forum postings, I have to take whatever the forum software supports, and I'm grateful that the forum supports hanzi at all. As far as I can see the shape of characters is almost the same in all the font faces offered by the forum, but Times New Roman, Georgia, and Comic Sans :lol: look a bit nicer than the default Courier:

Hmmm, it might be my browser settings, but all those apart identical to me.

Same here, though the code looks right.  I tried a couple of browsers, which were both the same.

I get the feeling that some aspects of computers are finally getting beyond my grasp.  Another aspect is in the Wordle thread; I've not been able to work out how the copied code for the charts works, nor explain why when I edit another part of a post containing it, it stops working...

They all look identical for me on iOS, but not on Mac, which doeslook like it has duplicates, but most of the examples differ.
