I owe a very large debt of gratitude to Dr. Kyoko Iriye Selden, senior lecturer at
Cornell University. She has provided me with direction and support and has given freely
of her time, providing me with the basis for all of the otherwise non-attributed translations found at this site.
Should you wish to use any of the translated material found at this site,
please request permission before doing so.
Should you find any errors, I take full responsibility for the mis-transcription.
All kanji found on this site have been
researched in the WWWJDIC
, Jim Breen's server at Monash University.
More uncommon kanji and their Chinese referents, which have not been found in the above site, have been researched in the
Macrons, in fonts other than "Times New Roman",
were created using Font Creator
by Erwin Denissen
and added to the site using Microsoft
