Hello all,

I'm rushing to send off the final draft of a Unicode paper for the
upcoming conference, and am desperate to find a legitimate example of
Han Unification display problems.

The two examples I dug out of various ongoing email debates etc. are
below:

	The traditional Chinese glyph for "grass" uses four
	strokes for the "grass" radical, whereas the simplified Chinese,
Japanese,
	and Korean glyphs use three. But there is only one Unicode point
for the
	grass character (U+8349) regardless of writing system.

	Another example is the ideograph for "one," which is different
in
	Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.

I have been told that neither of these are valid examples, for various
reasons. 

I very much want to include a legitimate example of a character which
displays using different glyphs in various character sets, and am hoping
that one of you brilliant people out there can send me one ASAP, so I
can finish this blasted paper and go home to grab a glass of eggnog.

Help please???
