Customizing the Dictionary Server

%value<< \ if ($return_address =~ /\bkanji\b/) { \ $_where = 'kanji lookup server'; \ $_link = 'kanji'; \ } else { \ $_where = 'main dictionary page'; \ $_link = 'dict'; \ } \ ''; \ >> Change any of the items you like throughout the page. At the bottom is a button to press which will make the changes take effect and return you to the %value{$_where}.

Once you have the settings the way you like, you can save the resulting %value{$_where} URL in a bookmark, leaving your favorite defaults at your mouse-tip.

For when you are using one of the encoding methods (a general discussion of encoding methods, BTW, is here), you can:
  • add anchors to large Japanese images.
  • For when text-as-image GIFs are created:

  • Images with kanji should be inlined: (but note this warning).
    You can also inline kana-only entries as well:
    Print images vertically:
  • Image text size: %if $option{'tty'} 18-pixel images, %else {{:gif/inline/S=18:元気:18-pixel}}, %endif %if $option{'tty'} 26-pixel images, %else {{:gif/inline/S=26:元気:26-pixel}} %endif %if $option{'tty'} 48-pixel images %else {{:gif/inline/S=48:元気:big momma 48-pixel}} %endif %if $option{'tty'} 64-pixel images %else {{:gif/inline/S=64:元気:jumbo 64-pixel}} %endif %if $option{'tty'} 96-pixel images %else {{:gif/inline/S=96:元気:super jumbo 96-pixel}} %endif
