Re: Strange chinese character

To all the responders: Many thanks. The Ministry of Education dictionary is a fantastic resource that I din't know about, and will enthusiastically recommend to anybody interested. It shows that the 积 character does exist as a variant for 積. This raises all sorts of questions. Were enthusiastic simplifiers sticking unauthorized simplifications into their linotype fonts around 1987 or '89, or was the ms. prepared for publication before that? Were the editor(s) submitting their own handwritten simplifications to the printer?
