What is the correct font ?

October 2014


I've been studying japanese kanji for some months, and I realize from time to time that my mnemonics ('Remembering the kanji') are messed up. Depending on if I study my list in excel or read online in Google Chrome, many kanji shapes change . For instance, the kanji for age (齢) or the one for thread (糸) dont look the same on chrome versus excel, or firefox for that matter. Could you tell me if this is a problem with chrome, or is this just a fact that kanji can take many forms? If the latter is true, It makes the 'remember the kanji' kind of difficult to apply strictly. It becomes dubious to learn a mnemonic that rely on every stroke perfectly, which is what the the book tends to do.
