Chinese/japanese/korean characters

Hello from Taiwan!

I was wondering if anyone knew whether there's a way to post chinese characters into blogger. My attempt at posting some (trying to cut and paste the characters from Word) failed. Is there something I should be doing? some software?

Not to make anyone too envious, but lychee are just coming into season this week here and oh, they're selling 4 jin for $3 US (nto sure how much jin equals a pound, but 4 jin is a lot of lychee!). I'm totally pigging out. This is really the only reason to be in Taiwan in June (oh, and to study chinese, of course :-)

Sorry!!! I'm so slow with this blogging stuff. My second attempt resulted in Chinese characters appearing in the post. Yay!

I was on a food blog the other day (within the last week I think) and they had posted a page which at least all the special French and German characters, maybe more, and I meant to make a note so I could post a link to it here at food blog s'cool.
Did anyone else see it and remember which blogger it was?
It would be a great reference for us all to have the link.

you could also make an image with the charachters in it to post as well. But you wouldnt want to have to put to many words in that way

FYI, 1 jin = 500grams, while 1 lb is 454 grams, so jin is almost the same as pound.

Very jealous about the lychee btw!
