Javascript Chart

I wrote a small HTML document that implements a quick-and-dirty chart for
Unicode, and I thought that someone on the Unicode list could find it

The whole 17 planes may be reached, and you can see the three standard
encoding forms (not the schemes!) of each character.

The document is formed by two HTML files and can be used off-line. Of
course, whether your browser shows the correct glyphs or just boxes depends
on the availability of fonts and Unicode support in your browser.

I only tested it with Internet Explorer 4.0 on Windows NT (sp6), and I have
font Arial Unicode MS installed.

I don't absolutely know (nor give warranties about) whether and how it works
on a different environment.

If anyone is adventurous enough to wish to try it, find the two files
attached. You should put both in the same directory, and open <cimaChrt.htm>
in your browser.

Hint: red text is clickable and has some effect; black text is static.

If you wish to read the sources, both files start with an explanatory
comment, but the rest is totally uncommented (yet).

Have fun (I hope).
