Testing Chinese input

OK, here goes the tiny amount of written Chinese that I can muster. Let's see if it shows up:


OK, I managed that using Microsoft's IME. I'm inputting using pinyin right now, but I want to learn bopomofo since I've read that it's used in Chinese beginning readers much like furigana.

I downloaded a pinyin converter, which I'll try here. I believe I have to change the font to Arial Unicode MS.

Nǐ hǎo. Wǒ jiào Steve. Wǒ shì Měiguorén. Wǒ lǎojiā zài Jiāzhōu. Nǐ shuō Zhōngwén ma?

I'm a beginner at Chinese, so I don't know if 中文 Zhōngwén is the correct word, since I think it refers to the written language. This is just technical experiment right now.
