No, I meant "Am I missing something about the available screens, so that these visually
complex glyphs are actually easier to display on them than I currently believe?" I am
well aware that there are many people on the globe who use a non-Anglo alphabet; I'm
just questioning whether current tiny screens are up to the challenge of serving the needs
of those people. I just can't visualize squeezing Kanji into an 8x7 pixel matrix.
