Introduction/Kanji dictionary/硬 堅い 固い

First of all, hello everyone :-) I'm learning Japanese and speak Danish and English fluently in addition to my mother tongue German. I'm generally very interested in languages, so I figured this community might be the right one for me :-)

Now for something that might actually be of use to some: I can recommend this Kanji dictionary which has stroke order animations for all Jouyou Kanji and a heap of compounds for each of them.

And finally, a question that has been bugging me for a while: As far as my dictionary tells me, 硬い, 堅い and 固い all mean "hard" - but what is the difference between them?
