PROTIP: That's not kanji
Thanks Alice. Maybe you can help us all understand...
I was using the term Kanji, inappropriately, to refer just to japanese fonts.
Another protip I could use is how to make the japanese fonts show up in my posts here when I use Safari. Anybody?
In modern Japanese, kanji
are used to write parts of the language such as nouns, adjective stems and verb stems, while hiragana are used to write inflected verb and adjective endings (okurigana), particles, native Japanese words, and words where the kanji is too difficult to read or remember. Katakana is used for representing onomatopoeia, non-Japanese loanwords, and for emphasis on certain words.
is a Japanese syllabary, one component of the Japanese writing system, along with katakana and kanji; the Latin alphabet is also used in some cases. Hiragana and katakana are both kana systems, in which each symbol represents one mora. Each kana is either a vowel (such as a ?); a consonant followed by a vowel (such as ka ?); or n ?, a nasal sonorant which, depending on the context, sounds either like English m, n, or ng (IPA: [?]), or like the nasal vowels of French.
Hiragana are used for words for which there are no kanji, including particles such as kara ?? "from," and suffixes such as ~san ?? "Mr., Mrs., Miss, Ms."
Hiragana are also used in words for which the kanji form is not known to the writer nor the readers or is too formal for the writing purpose. Verb and adjective inflections, as, for example, in tabemashita (?????? "ate"), BE MA SHI TA are written in hiragana. In this case, part of the root is also written in hiragana.
Hiragana are also used to give the pronunciation of kanji in a reading aid called furigana. The article Japanese writing system discusses in detail when the various systems of writing are used.
There are two main systems of ordering hiragana, the old-fashioned iroha ordering, and the more prevalent goj?on ordering.

Katakana are characterized by short straight strokes and angular corners, and are the simplest of the Japanese scripts.
