View topic - 開く
You have akeru and hiraku which are transitive, and then aku and hirakeru which are intransitive (hiraku can be used intransitively too though). Aku and hiraku are both written 開く, while akeru and hirakeru are both written 開ける.
As for the exact difference in nuance between akeru and hiraku, i don't know, so if anyone can clear that up for me it would be greatly appreciated here too.

I know that Internet Explorer 6 did not support ruby tags, I'm not sure about IE7. Firefox supports them currently only with the appropriate addon installed.

開く（あく） is intransitive while 開く（ひらく） is transitive, so if you see 何々を開く you know it is ひらく, not あく.
ひらく is not necessarily transitive. On the train you often hear.
