ASCII is officially dead

Intro

What is Unitools

Unitools is a suite of tools for working with Unicode in the browser. This is a collection of tools gathered from different sources on the net, and put onto one page for quick reference. The tools are a reaction to the increasing problem of resources disappearing from the net only never to be seen again.

Unitools is also an evolution of an old site, Unicode Tools, released in late 2011. The only difference is, all the tools are on one page, and this means less link-hopping, and an overall better experience for the user. It also makes the project easier to maintain, as new tools arrive all the time.

Why these tools?

  1. Phun!
  2. To bemuse others.
  3. To bypass profanity filters. No shit, Sherlock
  4. To do XSS. <script>alert(1)</script> Gets parsed as (ASCII) <script>alert(1)</script> in some PHP applications
  5. To be creative.
  6. To obfuscate / hide E-Mail adresses. E.G: david@higg.im
  7. To have your text not show up in search engines.
  8. To come across as l33t - even though you're not, you're only using Unicode mapper tools
  9. To confuse people on legacy machines
  10. To have Italics, and Strikethrough options on Twitter!

About

The Author
Whilst The Author didn't create all these tools, he ensures it was just as hard packaging them up for mass consumption by the wider dev community. As said earlier; there is a growing trend of Web Developers releasing great tools, and then, for whatever reason, taking the tools offline, without notice. (This has to stop). You might want to follow David to stay updated on, well, everything he does for The Community, and to keep up with other projects too :)
Browser Compatibility
Okay so fullwidth works on many devices, surprisingly. However, if you're on a legacy (old) machine, you might want to check This List of Unicode Characters for Reference, to see if they show up on it.
