Should something be said about always using halfwidth characters? BrianSchweitzer 08:51, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

It isn't really related to capitalization, although of course we could piggy-back it, just like the spaces issue is in Capitalization Standard Vietnamese. Most importantly, I still can't figure out what a good guideline for full-width vs half-width would be. Any normalization would look weird in some cases with mixed language and where MusicBrainz mandates a certain format (subtitle style and anything in parenthesis, mostly).

Hmm, I misunderstood. Always using halfwidth characters where? Foolip 09:11, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
I'm not entirely sure myself, exactly - I guess I just wouldn't want to see CJK transliterated to Latin but using Latin fullwidth, not halfwidth. BrianSchweitzer 09:27, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
Oh, I don't think we need to mention that, I can't remember every seeing that in the Chinese section, and I've seen most of it. We can handle it by voting if it ever happens. Foolip 09:42, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
