Another Unicode editor worth mentioning is Yudit (yudit.org), for
which a Windows binary is now also available (source code and packages
for Linux and other *nix platforms have always been available).
Yudit will allow you to open and save files in any of the three main
Unicode transformation formats (encodings): UTF-8, UTF-16, or UTF-32.
In addition Yudit (on Linux at least) comes with a tool which allows
you to convert numerous other legacy encodings (such as various
Windows code pages) to the more modern UTF formats.
I believe Yudit or the included tool will also allow you to convert
various escaped formats such as ASCII texts containing things like
"\u203d" -- Not sure if HTML entities are handled or not though.
Yudit is definitely worth taking a look at -- At the very least, a
tool such as Yudit along with some additional reading on how Unicode
works will undoubtedly demystify most of it.
Best - Ed
