so what's the difference between using "zij" or "ze"? are they equivalent?

Take a look at Herriejette's post up above - it describes it quite well. Check out this page for more information.

You can't say "zij staat hier"?

It's possible to use zij, but it stresses more on she. You would rather say 'Zij heeft het gedaan' than 'Zij is hier'. And ze is easier to pronounce. (The dutch are just lazy, go for the easiest option)

Thanks, but my question is about "staan," not "zij" vs. "ze."
