Learning more about unicode and internationalization. Found a brilliant resource at http://www.unicode.org/charts/unihansearch.html to search a given word or meaning, and then can google particular words from there. I'm feeling particularly illiterate trying to snoop around. Language is largely a whole hidden world for me, and that's unacceptable.

In theory, I've found the right characters here: 铁 观 音 (U94C1,U89C2,U97F3)

I'm most likely still way off. Update: I think I did identify Ti Kuan Yin (Tie Guan Yin) correctly.

Update 2: Or not. See: 十一面観音, 十一面観世音... ( 鉄観音- U9244,U89B3,U97F3??)

One seems to be Chinese, the other Japanese for the same entity.

Also: 鉄觀音 (U9244,U89C0,U97F3??)
