Purpose: This page is a PC utility to show the hex codes and their decimal ampersand equivalents associated with non-Latin-1 (non-Roman or accented) characters from pages encoded in Unicode/UTF-8.
Instructions: From any source, paste one or more characters into the top box, then click "Process." Hex and decimal equivalents will appear for all characters (except spaces). The last box can be used to "cut and paste" a value directly to an HTML editor. This page does NOT correctly process standard 7-bit ASCII characters (AaBbCc &c.), which can be used directly and do not require conversion to ampersand codes.
(Spaces between characters usually generate "NaN" errors in the Decimal line. I can't figure that out, but I don't use it for anything, so I have abandoned the effort.)
Click on the following examples to insert them into the input box.
Extended Roman: ê ü â Ì Ÿ ¼ ¾ ¿ ¡
Esperanto: Ĉ ĉ Ĝ ĝ Ĥ ĥ Ĵ ĵ Ŝ ŝ Ŭ ŭ
Russian: Я не говорю по-русски.
Greek: Αυτου οι θανατον μητσομαι.
