Lu/Lü/Liu



Quoting "Jaime A. Headden" <qilongia@yahoo.com>:


> <10) The paper by Junchang Lui,>
> 
>   Lü -- I have the paper before me. That is, on a standard keyboard
> (ASCII), depress and hold ALT, then in sequence, 1, 2, then 9, releasing
> each numeral in order to the next. This gives us "u" with an umlaut.
> Chinese/Japanese/Mongolian typography should read, surprising in a Chinese
> publication otherwise:
> 
>   Lü Lunchang, Dong Zhiming, Azuma Yoichi, Barsbold Rinchen, & Tomida
> Yukimitsu.

I am aware that "Lu" and "Lü" are different.  My question is, is "Liu" merely 
the pinyin transcription for "Lü", or are these distinct as well?
