comment Why is there a “tsu” in Nippon (にっぽん)?
@sawa I'm working with what I have. None of the sites I've been using mentioned this in their pronunciation section, or anywhere "in their first few pages."

Having first learned the hiragana, I was now trying to get to a basic level of understanding by walking through these two sites: learn-japanese.info/indexg.html and freejapaneselessons.com

@Chris I did not know what to call the little tsu, so I did not know how to search for it.

comment How to know what Okurigana signify?
Agreed on that last point, I do know that. Just trying to fill in the gaps on other sites. Case in point, many sites give a perfunctory explanation of okurigana, then just start using them full-out without further ado, hence I'm here, and this is after reading and re-reading the wikipedia article on the subject.
