This would be the ideal solution, but it means another data point in the encyclopedia. Basically, you would have your lifespan, but another date range aside to describe the 'approximated active period' which would be referenced by this search feature.

I think it would be great to support umlauts. That's why I'm surprised they are not supported. I'm wondering if maybe support was broken somewhere along the line, because it is the sort of thing I would have wanted to support originally. And indeed, I thought it was.

There is a descrepancy with this page: http://kongming.net/encyclopedia/Zhuge-Xing
The url gives the name of the officer in question as "Zhuge Xing" but the page is for Zhuge Jing.

Okay, so here we have a 'Zhuge Jing' in the novel chapter 111 and a 'Zhuge Xing' in the novel chapter 120. Some of these variations carry over from the version published at three kingdoms.com where less important characters with similar names were given incorrect Romanizations to differentiate, and that seems to be what has happened here.

Except I'm not sure they're separate characters.

I looked them up in a few Chinese versions of the novel online and 諸葛靚 (Zhuge Jing) shows up properly in chapter 120, but the Zhuge Jing in chapter 111 showed up with an unsupported Unicode character for their given name in 111. Searching in another version the 111 is also listed as 諸葛靚. So it looks like the 'Zhuge Xing' needs to be Zhuge Jing, but what would help is to find out if these are separate characters or the same.

James, in addition to the figures mentioned in my previous post, Qi Ji $2446 and $2331 are the same individual.

Hao Meng and He Meng are the same person.

Discussion from Quick translation, hanzi, and minor information assistance:

It was also him who "duel[ed] with Zhang Fei" and got "executed by Cao Cao" in the novel and who "rebelled against Lü Bu" and in the history. He was actually beheaded by Gao Shun instead of Cao Xing though. In other word, this is another mistake... :P

Duplicate reporting: Mijia $2432 and $2475 are duplicates, as are Lü You $1822 and $2418 and Fu Jia $2613 and Fu Gu $0162.

Also, re: the Dynasty Warriors issue mentioned earlier, maybe doing what was done for the mystics (giving them a checkbox in their development profile) would be a good idea?

That's the plan. Just need to finish a little project I'm working on for... work. :/

Yes, Sui is the correct pronunciation for his surname, but the first entry Gui Yuanjin has the correct chapter number for his appearance in RoTK (30).

All fixed up.

I did get you access to the Encyclopedia, right? I'm trying to remember if I followed through or went about being a knucklehead. :)
