    I'm not a programmer, and I'm sure there is a cleverer way to do this, but I made a Word
    macro that used the alt+X codepoint-to-character conversion to convert a list of Unicode
    hex values to corresponding characters:

    Jump to end of line
    Cursor down one line
    Figure out some way to terminate it

    The last bit caused me the most problems because, as I say, I am not a programmer.

    There are probably a lot of people laughing at me now, but mater artium necessitas.
