Technical Details

Note that characters in brackets [百 家 姓 ] are Chinese characters in Big5 format. If you have a Macintosh, Mac OS 8.5 or later supports reading Chinese fonts, but for inputting Chinese characters, or if you have a system earlier than OS 8.5, I suggest you install the Chinese Language Kit. If you are running Windows I suggest you install the Big5 Chinese fonts from the Microsoft website and a recent browser.
