Javascript code charts

Date: Tue Apr 11 2000 - 15:47:46 EDT

I've been investigating uses of Javascript lately, and put together a page
last night that shows code charts for all of Unicode with UTF-8, UTF-16 and
UTF-32 values. If you are interested in trying it out, it is at Feedback is welcome

- Your browser must handle frames, Javascript, and UTF-8.
- The characters you can see are limited to the fonts your browser handles.
For Windows, Unicode Arial MS is quite nice.
- Don't hit CR to search; actually hit the buttons.
- Netscape has a refresh problem if you resize. Hit the Find button to
refresh the screen.

- Illegal values (D800..DFFF, **FFFE, **FFFF) are marked in red
- The character you searched for is marked with green
- Control characters are not displayable in HTML/XML, and are replaced with
- Codepoints are in the cell, under the character
- UTF-8 values are on the left
- UTF-16 values (where different than the codepoint) are on the right
- In both cases, the last digit is replaced by "_": substitute the last
digit of the codepoint.
- If you go above 10FFFF or below 0, you wrap around.
