Richard Ishida has a Web based Unicode look up tool at

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

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.
