 Long vowels
Say, what method are you using to type the long Japanese vowels with a bar over them? texugo 12:14, 23 August 2011 (EDT)
- I just use Windows Character Map to get the character and paste it in. It's tedious. :-( Or, if I know the characters are elsewhere in the document, I copy/paste them from there. BigPeteB 12:32, 23 August 2011 (EDT)
 Hi Pete
Sorry to see you're "migrating" -- but we hope you'll continue editing here as well. They are now very different sites with different content, a major difference being that over at WM, your contributions simply will not be seen by many people. They have no travelers, only administrators. Here, you're helping 250,000 people every day who come and read and edit the best free travel guide on the Internet. In any case, thank you so much for your contributions, and happy travels :) --IBobi 15:27, 3 January 2013 (EST)
