● Multiple Character Searches

1. Matches returned for a search term include both positively and tentatively identified characters (with the tentative readings given in brackets).
Example: Searching with the term 式部省 (Shikibusho, the Ministry of Personnel Affairs) returns, in addition to exact matches, items such as □〔式ヵ〕部省 and 式□□〔部省ヵ〕.

2. The marker for an undecipherable character (□) functions as a single-character wildcard. Searches made with this wildcard in the search term return all possible matches, including positively and tentatively identified characters, as well as undecipherable characters.
Example: Searching with the term □省 returns 部省, □〔部ヵ〕省, □省, etc.
