How are you doing? Wanna join the discussion about the zh-tw.wikipedia.org problem? http://wiki.newzilla.org/index.php?page=zh-tw.wikipedia.org --Pektiong = pc

Sorry, but zh-tw.wikipedia.org is wrong. Why should I write twice for every article??? --Kaihsu 06:55 Apr 15, 2003 (UTC)

I have been also thinking about the possibility of Hō-ló-oē Wiki and investigating the opentype font technique to deal to POJ script --pc

On the other hand, Hō-ló-oē Wikipedia is cool. --Kaihsu 06:55 Apr 15, 2003 (UTC)

I plan to ask the people in the Hō-ló-oē community if a wikipedia like stuff can help the community. I think it would be helpful. So, let's start it? --pc

I think the Unicode needs to be sorted out first -- how do you do right dot above now? And input method? --Kaihsu 08:00 Apr 15, 2003 (UTC)

I wonder what progress has been made on encoding the Latin characters for Hō-ló-oē into Unicode. --Kaihsu 07:08 Apr 15, 2003 (UTC)

basically, no progress. There is plan to apply for right dot above this year in Octerber. I don't know the detail. It is like they will try to push POJ into CNS, and ask people in CNS to apply the right dot above. After studying the opentype, I come to understand more or less how ALL POJ can be implemened within current unicode with opentype font and the unicode consortium might turn the proposal down based on this. But you never know, if the government is backing up the proposal, there might be larger chance. I think the font technique is a bigger problem than encoding. --pc

Let's go to email on this, please. --Kaihsu 08:00 Apr 15, 2003 (UTC)


What is the motive of writing any encyclopedia? Is it writing for later reading of oneself? Or is it for writing for others to read? What is the philosophy?

Volumes titled the Encyclopedia of the Soviet Republic of Kazakhstan might not have been motivated by a collective desire of the people to capture a descriptive snapshot of the life of themselves and the understanding of the world at the moment for later reference -- instead, it may very well be a prescription of what the life of the people and what the understanding of the world should be.

This is the difference of zh-CN.wikipedia.org and zh-TW.wikipedia.org.

And just in case you are wondering, I think there should only be one zh.wikipedia.org, with an automatic conversion to deal with script issues. (That is, I am against zh-TW.wikipedia.org)

--Kaihsu 07:36 Apr 15, 2003 (UTC)

I did investigate this idea. Autrijus tells me his program can do most of the conversion, not just the trad/simp script but be able to translate some language variants. I don't know if this program can be incoperated into current wikipedia. I think the problem is it might be diffcult to agree on content sometime. But this might be the problem of the idea of encyclopedia itself. --pc
