Is this the palm version of xjdic or is it something else ? I was
mainly looking for an electronic dictionary with good handwriting
recognition. I have used the palm programs, but they are not as
comfortable as the Zaurus. I also tried the Canon Wordtank. It is
better than the Zaurus in terms of vocabulary, but the input method
for kanji is not as fast as just writing them. It was sometimes easier 
to use the Zaurus to find the pronunciation of a kanji and then use
the wordtank to get a better translation/explanation.
