Using a Hex to Text Converter in Cross-browser Testing
A hex to text converter can be useful if you're doing cross-browser testing. For example, if you have written your own UTF-8 decoder, then you can use this utility to generate test cases for your code. Your test cases will have hexadecimal UTF-8 values as the input and Unicode text as the output. Another use case is if you're storing strings or other data in a database as hexadecimal code point values and you want to quickly see what they say, then you can load them in this utility and they'll be decoded back to textual data that you can read. Additionally, if you see a code point value you don't recognize and want to convert it to a Unicode symbol, then you can enter it in the input field of this program and instantly get the result.
