Cool when you need it
Authored by: Makosuke on Aug 29, '05 04:35:24PM

There's really only one service I use on any sort of a regular basis, but that one service so perfectly fills a need that I have to say I really like the services.

Specifically, there's a relatively obscure app that can generate the HTML Unicode entities for any character. It would be hard to use, but it provides a service for (among a lot of other conversions) converting the selected text from Unicode to HTML entities. When coding chunks of Japanese text into an English web page, this is so much of a timesaver it's not even funny.

That "relatively obscure app" is UnicodeChecker. :-)

Unicode info via Character Palette, built in

You can also select and drag any single character into the 'well' of the Character Palette, which will show it among others in a relevant set. Hold the mouse pointer over a highlighted character in the list to see its codes.
