This isn't useful for Western alphabets, but it makes it much easier in languages like Chinese and Japanese.

The updated sites is also better at dealing with overlapping, which is capable of solving problems with screen space, where in some cases forced people to write one letter at a time. Chinese support has been updated to support multiple onscreen characters.
