How would you spell the name of Lo Pan's demon, the God of the East?

The DVD subtitles spell it Ching Dai, and I think they used the shooting script when writing the subtitles. This spelling is also logical.

Although it could also be spelled like Ching Ta'i or T'ai.

How would you spell it?

It sounds like a D sound though.

I agree, but when pronouncing Chinese in English, a 'T' makes a somewhat 'D' sound. Like Taoism. It is prounounced more like 'dow-ism' than 'tao-ism' with a hard 'T' sound.

It's Ching Dai....

Because in Chinese, Dai and Tai are two very different words.
