Identifying a Unicode character

From: David J. Perry (

If I receive a Word document created with a font I don't have, and my
Unicode fonts (even Lucida Sans Unicode or Arial Unicode) don't have that
character, is there any way to find out what Unicode value underlies the
little rectangle that is displayed? Then I could look up the value and
find out what the character is supposed to be. I know how to get Word to
convert a hex number into a real Unicode character--but can one do the reverse?

Thanks -- David
