Is there any possibility to add PHONETIC function to extract the phonetic (furigana) characters from a text string. I think many Japanese users want this function.
If cells A1 contains "東京" the following are true:
=PHONETIC(A1) equals "トウキョウ"
Also, if you import Excel book which uses PHONETIC function, #NAME? error occurs because Calc doesn't have one.

I'm also cc'ing Winfried, who is very knowledgeable about Calc functions.
@Eike: What's the status of PHONETIC function? http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/libreoffice/2011-November/020844.html
I didn't found this function in odf format spec. Thank you
On purpose.. in http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/libreoffice/2011-November/020844.html you linked I gave the explanation. If some native Japanese speaking developer feels entitled to tackle this, welcome. I have no clue.
