Insert a Unicode character


Embed a Unicode sequence into a manuscript when a special character is not normally visible, or is not easily entered through the keyboard.


A Unicode sequence begins with a percent-sign % and is followed by two, four or six hexadecimal digits. A space at the end of the digits stops the sequence. An escape character \ can also be use to forcably end a unicode sequence.


Here is what a Unicode sequence looks like within the body of a manuscript.

An en-dash %2013.
An em-dash %2014.
A non-breaking space %00A0.
A zero-width joiner %200D.
