I've done both of these already - thanks to tips from other helpful friends
- and my several "experts" either recanted or shut up.
It turned out that the people making such statements didn't even know
Chinese, & had never doubted that the want could be best supplied by their
own imaginings on what Chinese handwriting "must probably be like", stated
It wasn't that they'd ben trying to mislead people, it was that they
simply had never in their lives come upon the idea that statements created
by such a process could possibly be wrong.
