Look similar and cause confusions.

Some software automatically (silently, without any warning) replace character 見 to 見. This causes confusions. In particular, at TORI (that accesses the database at mizugadro), it is not possible to create article entitled 見 (short name for XFA0A) in a regular way. Attempts to access it redirect to article (short name for X898B).

At the confusions, the articles should be specified with their hexadecimal names X2F92, X898B, XFA0A rather than with the short names , , .
