But is a romanized version of U+6F22 U+5B57 based on the Cantonese
pronunciation ever used in English writing the way <hanzi> (based on
Mandarin pronunciation) is?
For those familiar with "ASCII IPA", it's /hOn33 tSi22/. (<O> denotes
U+0254 LATIN SMALL LETTER OPEN O; <s> denotes U+0283 LATIN SMALL LETTER
ESH.) Yale romanization would write it <honjih>, a modified Yale would
write it <hon3ji6>, etc.
 I wish I could assume that everyone can view IPA, and not go through
contortions like this.
