    A bit of an odd request...

    I'm trying to post a link to a Japanese page on a phpBB-based forum, but the URL contains katakana and kanji and phpBB doesn't seem to be able to cope with that. Instead, I tried to use TinyURL, but it doesn't seem to like it either, as I get a 404 when trying to follow the resulting links.

    Is anyone aware of a service similar to TinyURL that can handle kana and kanji?

    Thanks :)

    Thanks, bit.ly can do it :)

    縮.jp, while it does work, just takes me back to square one since I'm just stuck with a shorter URL containing kanji :p
