  and memorize the different characters, especially those with a large number of strokes.
  Can also be used as a magnifier for small Chinese characters.
- As a learning aid it uses different colors for displaying the Pinyin syllables,
  depending on the tone of the Chinese character.
- Can be turned on and off with a single mouse-click.
- Highlights the characters whose translation is displayed in the popup window.

  previous character.
