This is a discussion about 栄え

"sakae" as 栄

I've seen "sakae" as 栄 in a letter of a song. I think there should be an entry remarking that it's incorrect like this. I don't know how to do it, though.

Why do you want to make an entry that says "writing さかえ like 栄 is incorrect"? You're talking about lyrics write? Lyrics are not standard Japanese... people can do basically whatever they want. There is enormous leeway to how people wish to represent the actual words in the kanji they use. If you see enough song lyrics, you'll notice "discrepancies" between standard Japanese and "lyric Japanese" all the time.
