What is this character? Is it even Chinese?


Recommended Posts

My dictionary spits out:

㯠 qiàn, xiàn, xún ... a cross-beam; an axle, etc.

I think Shibo77 is right. If you search for it with Google, lots of site in Spanish/ Portuguese have the character. Strange

Perhaps this one is so rare it isn't in some systems... when I open the link in shibo's post, even the 'heading' of the window says 字典中[]字的解釋.

If it shows up in a lot of Spanish and Portuguese sites, it does sound likely that it shares a code with one or the other letter with an ~ over it. Chaning the encoding settings should help, or at least clarify.

Funny, I can actually search it when I copypaste the []. This (cached) site seems to show that it's a matter of encoding settings. Lots of obscure characters in an otherwise Portuguese text.
