Librarians are certainly a group of users using Unihan a lot, to identify encodings for rare characters.

Several of them have complained that it gets more and more difficult to use for them. One issue is, that the database itself started to use encodings rather than images; which made it impossible to find characters in versions their standard SimSun fonts did not support. That of course had a solution; they should now choose “use images”.

But now they report that the radical-stroke page itself has changed to encodings rather than images; and the radicals are not in the standard fonts. Hence, the search pages (clicking on the number of strokes of the radical) shows something like


Can there be a change so that also these pages (based upon the number of strokes of the radical) has an option to show these pages, not only the result, have a “display with images” option?
