A Useful Tool for non-English websites Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a useful add-on to convert among different forms of representing non-ASCII characters. Often I need to look at the source of a web page that is not encoded in UTF-8 and try to find the code around a certain string. Having this tool readily available is very handy. Conversely, I occasionally have a need to add a few Asian characters to a site already encoded as ISO-8859-1, or to add a word like façade to a page encoded in Big-5, GB, or Cyrilic. Rather than changing everything to UTF-8, this tool allow me to quickly figure out the hex character references to use and just put them in.

There are pages on the web that provide similar function, but it is so much handier to have it as an add-on.

Highly recommended to anyone dealing with multi-lingual websites.
