Thanks for the advice! I have not tried other input methods in Emacs yet
and always took it as sort of a challenge to having to know the actual
character, to be able to write Chinese in Emacs :D On one hand it puts
the last used characters to the front, but on the other hand it does not
do much more than that. Its simplicity is sometimes a help, but also
often not very helpful.

I will give your suggestions a try later.

谢谢 and 祝好,
