Hi there

In Japanese both hiragana and katakana have two ways of writing "ji " and "zu." Although their sounds are same in either writing, じ and ず are used most of the time. In a few rare cases they are written ぢ and づ. Here's why

Trough I searched on net, here, and in Wakan i couldn't find any way to write them as ぢ and づ...

I know there have to be a way... i probably just missed it... and I didn't have anyone to ask but here.

So... my question is... How do I do it in Wakan?

Isn't the same as IME? di and du? I don't think I've ever searched for anything with those in wakan though ^^;, but try it out.

Hahahha...
You are right
As i guessed I just missed it... so simple ^^ ahh never mind THX anyway.

Then again i have another question.... this time i don't think it's as obvious as last one....

I mean in katakana how do you make "little" signs like these:
ティ ti
トゥ tu
just as they are in wikipedia... here

and little tsu on the end of sentence... like in for example: 気の迷いなんだっ

I'm not a pro on wakan input, but windows IME is simple enough.
little characters are made by putting an 'l' or 'x' in front. so 'li' or 'xi' creates ぃ. Same with っ (ltsu / xtsu / ltu / xtu).
In the middle of a word, double letters do it. datta → だった
pa-teli / pa-texli = パーティ

In wakan, typing paati has brought me to パーティ
Wakan is a bit different to IME.
I hope this gives you some clues about searching in wakan. I don't use wakan for searches anymore.

For me to get パーティ in wakan i had to type pa-texi / paatexi

but x sure is a wonder and l in wakan doesn't work ^^ but you can work around it ... ^^

by the way i dont use windows IME so... wakan is my bet ^^

Thanks again ^^
