You can try pasting it into vim.  Run vim and enter insert mode, the
press ^V, then paste the character.  The ^V allows you to escape
special characters.  When you have the character in a buffer, "ga"
will display the decimal, hex, and octal values of the character.



Q: What is the difference betwee open-source and commercial software?
A: If you have a problem with commercial software you can call a phone
   number and they will tell you it might be solved in a future version.
   For open-source sofware there isn't a phone number to call, but you
   get the solution within a day.
