Detailed Notes

This screen can be used to provide the diacritical marks conventional over some letters in Cantonese, Mandarin, and Esperanto, replacing Chinese tone numbers or Esperanto x-format letters. In the case of Mandarin and Esperanto, it also provides "ampersand" values for use in non-UTF-8-encoded web pages. (I ran out of steam on the Cantonese. So use UTF-8 already!)

The page is net-independent. Feel free to save a copy to your computer for off-line use.
