Frm all the great info people have posted I'm definitely going to look
into it!

Which model do you have? I have the IDF-4000 and the 4 tango-cho's are
limited to 100 words each. And it does have the kanji compound lookup
function but only for compounds that start with a given kanji, and only
for that kanji when the reading is the on yomi.

But even if a newer Wordtank had bigger tango-cho's the Zaurus really
sounds like fun. I didn't know that the menus/etc where changeable
depending on a LANG var. I should know better than to askk a Bic Camera
salesman about OS's and language ...
