Also, it warns you when you write wrong texts (such as in respect language). The dictionary is also exclusive with many names and place-names. The palette offers similar functionalies as Windows IME and MacOSX Kotoeri have. For example, when you have to put a kanji which you don't know how to read, you can use the palette to search by stroke count or radical.

I'm happy to buy it - in fact I did buy it, but the version had come out 
some time earlier and I haven't been able to get it working.  I'm glad a 
new version will be coming out - no doubt it will be installable (by me)

(as it is, I switch machines when I need to write in Japanese).  I 
realize that the man in the mirror is to blame for this situation, but 
the situation is the way it is and so I don't mind paying for something
