How does a Chinese dictionary work?

You know, I’ve wondered about this for years. I still don’t know. But here are some notes from my online meandering in search of the answer:

On-line Chinese Tools contains a number of interesting links, including “Get a Chinese Name.”

Ray’s is Kong Rui su, “Sharp Revive.”

Lee’s is Kuang Ling en, “Soul Charity.”

Mine is Kong Dao ning, “Way Peaceful.”

The characters are organized by brush strokes. See here for a Chinese character dictionary.
