|Other browsers are supported as much as possible but are not so thoroughly tested.|
Two popups are available. The larger popup provides more information, the smaller one is for a quick view. Use the toolbar or popup buttons to switch at any time.
The default language is English. To bookmark another language or dictionary, use:
|www.smarthanzi.net?dict=ddb||DDB (with Soothill & Hodous)|
The web site does not specify a particular Chinese font. Chinese fields are marked with "zh" (language) and "sans-serif" (font-family), so each user can choose his or her preferred font with the browser options. Although this is not fully clarified, it looks like the best way is to set the font for simplified Chinese.
SmartHanzi.net benefits from several distinct dictionaries. When you have annoted a text with one language or dictionary, you just have to click on a "Same text" entry to annotate the same text with another dictionary. The result is displayed in a new window or a new tab, so both annotations are available simultaneously.
Tip: with Internet Explorer, use Ctrl+click to open a new tab (press the "Control" key while you click).
