Wikipedia never heard of Hot Pot...

Wikipedia does cover "Hot Pot", and "Shabu-Shabu", a Japanese version, Steven:

Great stuff!!

a Chinese version of fondue

There is really very little resemblance to Fondue, except for the heated center table common pot. Fondue tends to use cheeses in the center pot. Hot Pot tends to use a broth. A LOT of vegetables are used in Hot Pot. I haven't seen that in Fondue. Usually, side dipping sauces, usually with a base of soy sauce and garlic, chives, chopped ginger root, chopped cilantro and chopped hot peppers are used in conjunction with Hot Pot. I haven't seen that in Fondue, in a (separate) dipping sauce - except for, perhaps, chopped hot peppers, chopped green onions and chopped garlic, but those, generally, would be added to the melted cheese in the center pot, rather than used as a side dipping sauce.
