You do know how they write in China, don't you?

How can "May" be spelled "Mei" in China if they use Hanzi, not Latin letters?

As long as you don't use Hanzi, i.e. proper Chinese characters, *all* spelling of She-Lan is *only* phonetical: writing in Latin characters, English-speaking people's style, of what those people heard when some Chinese people *spoke* the name She-Lan.
