UniView Unicode Character Lookup

|

Richard Ishida has a Web based Unicode look up tool at
http://people.w3.org/rishida/scripts/uniview/uniview.php

This is a search form which allows you to view data by name, hex value, actual pasted character or range.

There's another conversion utility at
http://people.w3.org/rishida/scripts/uniview/conversion.php
which allows you to convert characters from hex values to different variants such as decimal values, percent escapes (Web address) and UTF-8 vs. UTF-16.

The character paste feature is especially valuable for random symbols such as (infinity) or ɛ (Open e, epsilon vowel). You can finally extract a code point from a weird symbol used in your Word doc.
