The JapanKnowledge edition maintains the same structure as the printed version. It also exploits the features of the Web by linking reference items in the main text so that they can be displayed with just a single click.
The user can search not only by entering Chinese characters or pinyin, but also by entering alphabetic letters without tone marks (e.g. chénggōng 【成功】→ chenggong) and alphabetic letters with numbers as tone marks (e.g. cheng2gong1). The JapanKnowledge edition of the dictionary makes it easy to search even if you do not know the tone of the word.
