        Beats the stuffing out of your choice of calling them "kanji" in one
half of the sentence and "Han digits" in the next! In any case, that's
probably the only good name, since some of the characters are unique to each
of China, Japan, and Korea; some are used by all three; some are used in
China and Japan, and some by China and Korea (I belive that there are none
which are used in Japan and Korea, but not Chgina, but I could be wrong).

        It is generally considered good practice to put your signature at
the *bottom*.
