    I just did a search for a katakana chart and came up with plenty of links, finding a good chart should be no problem... http://hem.passagen.se/bomark/japanska/katakana.html looks pretty good to me. There's also a few rules you should know if you're going to converting English into katakana, like a small tsu character doubles the next consonant sound, and use a dash to double the preceding vowel sound. (Maybe you already know this, I'm just trying to be helpful with what little knowledge I actually have ) Can't think of any other ones right now.

    Wow, great link, GOTL.
    I've seen Katakana charts before, bu tthis is the first I've seen which shows you stroke order. Very nice.
    http://www.japanese-online.com/ is also a pretty good resource for learning Japanese in general, as well as the written language (Lesson 6, I believe)
