New in IGCS - Dictionaries (http://www.sino.uni-heidelberg.de/igcs/iglang.htm#dictionaries):


Online Kangxi character dictionary


Ed./Corp.: n/a
URL: http://www.kangxizidian.com/
Language: Chinese (UTF-8).

Description: This site offers free online access to the 47.000+ characters in the dictionary, first published in 1716, based on a reprint of the Tongwen shuju edition (1895-97). Users can search for single characters or their Unicode code-points (UTF-32, omitting leading zeros), browse the contents by radical, or simply "leaf" through the dictionary. 
Only the headwords (lemmata) can be searched, not the commentaries or glosses. For each character the page number where it appears in the dictionary and its Unicode number are given. 
For a limited number of characters (i.e. δΈ­ / 4E2D) the dictionary entry has been digitised (typed). Users are encouraged to add more information about single characters in the forum.

Contents: (1) Main page; (2) Scanned originals; (3) Radicals search [not yet operational as of May 2006 - M.A.]; (4) Full text search; (5) Forum; (6) Contact.
