I ordered the entries ni "nishiro,niseyo,nishitemo" and "nishiro,niseyo,nishitemo-2" and which were a little of a mess.

I differentiated them since they had opposite different meanings and there's and I think there is an extra one (ni shitemo) which is not needed, since it equals the same as the "nishiro,niseyo,nishitemo". I request to unify them in such a case.

dcにせよ and にしろ are the same. but very different from のくせに which is stronger like "despite" 
AmatukaIf you've got all にせよ examples and no にしろ I suggest moving changing the 'headline' entry to にせよ. 
dcat the moment everything (including links) is indexed off the headline entry. so just changed the jpnz... 
yuenannieCan you explain when we use にしろ and when to use にせよ? tks 
adnimI totally can't read that Kanji-Katakana in #6372, and I highly doubt にも(かかわらず) should mix with にせよ in #5813. By the way, was it rubyhatchetさん himself who marked the entries as excellent in the first place? I doubt the value of this kind of valuating system. 
leonardo.stylishI added/moved ex 3043(from bamboo4) to its respective correct grammar entry.
I request an admin to erase the entry.
