Nope, it's 652.

Actualy, I don't think it would. First off, since it's hex, it'd have to be
"ʌ" (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, "ʌ" 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.
