Abstract: Examples are constructed showing that the coradical of a finite-dimensional Hopf algebra over any algebraically closed field is not necessarily a subalgebra (hence the Jacobson radical is not a Hopf ideal in general). The square of the antipode may induce a permutation on the simple subcoalgebras of dimension $ > 1$ of arbitrarily high order.
