Stroke order (Japan)
Note the different forms, which differ in two respects: both Simplified and Traditional do not have a left vertical stroke, while the orthodox form has a left vertical stroke; and in simplified form, the top component is connected with the bottom, while in the orthodox they are separated - this last difference is shared with unrelated characters
? and ?. The older form and stroke order are used in Japan and Korea.
