Unicode™ is an encoding system that provides a unique number for every character. Unicode™ is being used in a wide range of computer systems and is spreading over the world wide web. With Unicode™, computer programs can combine several languages into the same document. Although Unicode™ is platform, program, and language independent, the implementations of Unicode™ are not. On several, not fully Unicode™ compliant systems, the encoder / decoder below, as well as the tables of characters in Unicode™, will not show correct values.
Unicode™ and the Unicode Logo are trademarks of Unicode, Inc. For more information about Unicode please refer to The Unicode® Home Page.
You can use the following Encoder / Decoder to display characters in Unicode™ and how they appear on the screen. The Unicode™ escaped characters are shown as Hexadecimal numbers preceded by % (for characters 20 to FF) or %u (for characters above FF) e.g. the character "/" is the Unicode™ escaped character "%2F" and the character "Л" is the Unicode™ escaped character "%u041B".
