Insert Unicode

If you want to use Unicode characters on web sites then you usually have to copy and paste them in. With this add-on you can just click on a button, type in the Unicode value (eg: 20AC for the Euro symbol or 03C0 for the lower case Greek pi character) and click on the "Insert" button to enter the character.
