tones for stroke names

Recommended Posts

Pravit

I'm unsure on the proper tones for stroke names. The Wikipedia article on Chinese stroke order lists them, but the speaker in the estroke program(quite nifty, will show correct stroke order for any character) pronounces them differently: heng2, pie1, dian4 instead of heng1, pie3, and dian3 as in the WP article. Which is right?
