Redirect[edit source]

Should there be a redirect to this page? When I needed to find it, I first typed in Tome of the Night Sky, then tried this. I think a redirect here would be a good thing for those who would prefer to use the right name. -GlancingReverse

Created it. --Koveras Alvane 09:03, October 10, 2009 (UTC)

Ruby characters[edit source]

What are they? --Koveras Alvane 16:01, January 2, 2011 (UTC)

Ruby characters are small, annotative glosses that can be placed above or to the right of a Chinese character when writing languages with logographic characters such as Chinese or Japanese to show the pronunciation. (per wiki)
For example, Graf Eisen is also called "鉄の伯爵 Kurogane no Hakushaku", but Kurogane is actually not an ordinary pronunciation of "鉄 tetsu". Therefore it is usually printed as "くろがねの伯爵" to specify its pronunciation. Reinforce II is sometimes printed as "リインフォースIIツヴァイ" to remind the german "zwei" instead of "two". Other examples include many ancient belkan spells, which I would go through later. K.Hayes 16:21, January 2, 2011 (UTC)
I see. Well, if you know how to do that Ruby thing, please go ahead. --Koveras Alvane 16:25, January 2, 2011 (UTC)
