Stuart,

Could you please explain the difference between "hankaku" and "zenkaku".

Thanks, Russ

Yes, here in Japan, there are many search engines that are Japan
specific.

Some time back, there was what seemed to be an unbiased article in
"Yahoo Japan" magazine which was comparing the number of hits returned
when both hankaku and zenkaku katakana keywords were searched for on
various Japanese search engines. Some engines returned the same results
for hankaku and zenkaku searches and others returned different results
so it is probably a good idea to include both in the keywords.
