[Sigia-l] The ultimate controlled vocabulary
The Ministry of Public Security has drawn up new rules and babies¹ names
must in future be drawn from a database that excludes thousands of rare
Chinese characters. Out go indecipherable names. With the introduction of
electronic identity cards, the authorities will register only names that
they decide to include on their database.
IA's got to be a popular profession in China. :-)
