Romanji To Kanji Conversion

In all of the input systems described here, romaji is converted into kanji, hiragana, or katakana . The relationship of the romanji to the Japanese character set can confusing. This can be especially difficult for members of the Linux-Nihongo community who may even great difficulty inputting their name and the names of their friends in katakana.

I'm including a section of Jeffrey Friedl's manual page for his excellent lookup program. Most of the romanji to Japanese conventions apply to the programs covered in this document.
