About UniView:
Look up characters, character blocks, paste in and discover unknown characters, store your own info about characters, search on character names, do hex/dec/ncr conversions, highlight character types, etc. etc. Check out the help file for instructions and new features, and have fun!

Supports Unicode 4.0 and rewritten with Web Standards to work on a variety of browsers. – this is still work in progress and has some known bugs (esp surrogates), but I use it all the time.

Initially downloads about 1Mb of Unicode data, so you should use a fast connection. Once it’s cached you’re ok. Alternatively, download the newly available zip file and run it from your PC. It’s just XHTML and Javascript – so no worries about viruses.
