    Please leave the "Search by Name" function enabled, it is
    quite useful. Type in the word PARENTHESIS and BabelPad
    or BabelMap steps through the entire Unicode repertoire,
    finding *all* the parenthesis characters.

    It's a lot easier for me to remember or guess the Unicode
    name when searching for a character than it is for me to
    remember the hexadecimal string.
