Footnote: gaiji are ad-hoc kanji; that is to say, brand-new Chinese-style
characters created for proper name or corporate use.  [Why can't we do
this in English?  Just 26 characters is so, y'know, pedestrian, and limits
*my* creative expression every day.] Gaiji are not exactly ubiquitous, but 
quite commercially important.  Sigh.
