Every once in a while you come across a little tool that doesn't do all that much but elicits a response like "Wow - this is really handy!" Richard Ishida's Unicode Code Converter is just such a tool.
It does what it says: It converts between characters, Unicode code point numbers, UTF-8 and UTF-16 code units in hex, and Numeric Character References (hex and decimal). Just add one type of data, press tab, and see all the corresponding values.
So if you have a periodic need a tool for converting pretty much any Unicode representation to any other, bookmark the Unicode Code Converter now.
