MOJI Update (Lecture guides for kanji in Japanese web pages)
by Erwan Loisant

MOJI is a project to enrich Japanese web pages for a better readability to foreign Japanese learners. Japanese language includes Chinese characters or kanji, quite complicated characters where one character represent one idea, or one word. Since there are several thousands of kanji, and one kanji can have several lectures according its place in a word, mastering kanji is a difficult part of Japanese learning. MOJI proposes to add small characters on the top of kanji to indicate the prononciation, called lecture guides or Ruby, making browsing of Japanese pages easier.
