Just out of curiosity, how do you know my contact e-mail?

I'm sorry but I do not know what Kanji, hanzi are...I might if I am shown the
Chinese translation of these two words though.  I'm using a Chinese Windows 98
and everything is in Chinese.  As a result I have trouble understanding the
terminology when they are written in English.

In R, I don't know if this is what you want:

I got it by directly Chinese input, i.e.:

Can you be more specific what you are wanting (although I can't guarantee I can
be of much help...)?
