Some Unicode links

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/12/30

I see a lot of programmers struggle with Unicode and think it is difficult as getting the encoding decoding hassle right can take quite a bit of effort.

Here are a few links from to characters and blocks of characters in their database that I like a lot:
