Nope, it's 652.

Actualy, I don't think it would. First off, since it's hex, it'd have to be "&#x028C" (I think is the format--with a semicolon at the end), and not all browsers understand character references in hex, so you'd want to convert it to decimal, "&#652" with a semicolon. But second off, even though it looks like you're describing the WGL4, these numbers don't correspond to Unicode values. 01AC = Latin Capital T with Hook (Cap I with tilde = 0128) 01AE = Latin Capital T with Retroflex hook (Cap I with Macron = 012A) 01B6 = Latin small letter z with stroke (K-cedilla = 0137) 01B7 = latin capital Ezh (k-cedilla = 0138) 01F1-022B = Latin capital DZ to small letter o with dieresis and macron (Greek = 0374 to 03E0, roughly) 011C = Latin Capital G with circumflex (Cyrillic = 0400 to 04F9 or so) 028C = the IPA symbol for [V] (small pi = 03C0) so I don't know what your program is doing. *Muke! --
