Rick, Harry, Bill, others - if you ever have to convert from various
encodings of
Unicode to escape sequences for a programming language or HTML, take a
good look at Richard Ishida's tool below.

For those of you who use this.


This web-based tool helps you convert between a number of Unicode
escape and code formats.

Changes in version 6:

    * Convert from JavaScript, Java and C escape notation, and to
JavaScript/Java escapes (with switch to show C-style supplementary
    * Convert to and from CSS escape notation
    * Convert from HTML/XML code with escapes to code with just characters
    * Convert < > " or & in HTML/XML code to entities
    * Option to show ASCII characters when converting to NCRs
    * View a set of characters in UniView by clicking on the View in
UniView button

For CSS output I chose the 6-figure version with no optional space,
since I thought it was clearest. I've had a request to change it to
the shortest form (4 or 6 figures) followed by space. If other people
prefer that, I may change it.
