Coding Japanese Text

While most browsers can read Japanese text nowadays, coding can be used just to be on the safe side, with a nihongo template.

The code:{{nihongo|'''Romanized Title'''|Japanese text|Phonetics}}

For example: {{nihongo|'''Space Sheriffs'''|宇宙刑事|Uchū Keiji}}


Space Sheriffs (宇宙刑事, Uchū Keiji?)
