A few questions about the chinese writing system (Bugs)

Hello Solis

[edit] I should read all new entries before answering one. So please forget my questions. :-)[/edit]

Thank you for supporting my search for a solution.

I copy'n'pasted your texts from both entries into a qualified editor, played a bit around and now, after the playtime, I have a few questions.

As first, I can't read the text. As second, I try to understand the rules of notation.

1. Do you write from left to right or from right to left?
2. In both entries the punctuation marks (comma, semicolon, question mark, exclamation mark) are noted without a space before and after the marks. Is this the normal notation for writing chinese?
3. "" = comma | "" = punctuation mark (dot) | "" = a letter?

If my assumption in the second question is correct, then your whole texts are counted as one word. In languages that are wrote with latin, greek or cyrillic based alphabets it is common, that a punctuation mark is followed by a space (blank) and in some cases there is also a space in front of the mark. So the length of the words are counted from space to space and the words are much shorter than in your examples.

Tschö, Auge
