Things I learned about Unicode today

Sunday 4 January 2004

I learned a couple of things about Unicode today:

1. Python has a named character escape in Unicode strings:

>>> u'\N{MIDDLE DOT}'
u'\xb7'

2. The Unicode Consortium maintains authoritative parsable data files describing various aspects of Unicode and its myriad characters: Unicode Character Database.
