UnicodeInput Utility

One of the blogs I read belongs to Mike Kaplan who created the Trigeminal website, featured in the sidebar. (I do know that my sidebar is a little puny, but I have had the habit of bookmarking sites in my favourites for ever - and can't seem to change the habit. That is also why I don't have an RSS feed.)

Mike writes enough posts everday in Sorting It All Out that he can afford to be both entertaining and technically detailed - quite an achievement! One of the many pluses of reading Mike's blog is that each post is brought to you by a Unicode character.

"This post brought to you by "ש" (U+05e9, a.k.a. HEBREW LETTER SHIN)"

Remember those long ago days ...

Yesterday he posted on a Unicodeinput Utility. I haven't tried it yet but it looks like it will answer a question I asked last month about how one could input by codepoint. I have always just input letters or characters, of some kind or other, but I have wondered what it meant to input by 'codepoint'. This needs to be in my list of resources. Thanks, Mike.

You are very welcome, though of course someone else did the real work here. :-)

If you're using OS X on a Macintosh, Unicode hex input is one option you can add in the keyboard menu.
