Search for Unicode Values with UniView

Do you need to know the Unicode encoding value for a character in your database? You can see the character in OCLC Connexion or in your local system, but how can you find the character's encoding?

There is a great tool for that available free online:

Uniview not only gives you the encoding, it also provides a direct link to the full record for the character in the Unihan database.

UniView was created by Richard Ishida of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
