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.


  1. Characters will only be inserted in to <input> or <textarea> elements.
  2. Only Unicode characters supported by the font will be displayed correctly.

Known Issue: Some versions of Firefox do not auto focus the input field properly.
