Look at: http://www.elbrecht.de/utf8site.htm
for a more up-to-date version of "UNIcodeX," etc.

As MacUser you should be able to "copy & paste" the "UTF-8 code" of the
"character displayed" - this works with all not-displayed characters as
well and even with all not-yet allocated characters - i.e. from "0000"
throught "FFFF". You just have to know the character's location then!

But you have to select the "character/slot" in question rather quickly,
before Netscape mechanics intervene - thats the way I did all my
homepage in UTF-8!
