My question is, which is > actually correct for Japanese? As Stephen posted, the second. Two useful URLs: http://www.unicode.org/cgi-bin/GetUnihanData.pl?codepoint=55a9 <- the "correct" one http://www.unicode.org/cgi-bin/GetUnihanData.pl?codepoint=55BB&useutf8=true As you will see, the second one lacks a "Jsource" - it does not exist in Japanese standards. My "JIS 漢字字典" has it as a glyph variant of the first one. Many Japanese fonts (e.g. the old BDF I use with kterm) show the variant rather than the correct glyph, hence the confusion. The glyph used in Heisig may well be 喻.
