Testing Utility: CatchChar

A Lifehacker post pointed me to a useful Windows utility for quickly testing characters not found on the standard keyboard – CatchChar.

CatchChar runs in the system tray and is accessed via a keyboard combination. When activated, a popup menu appears with characters you have defined. This is a very quick way to access a set of characters when testing. It can be downloaded at http://helpingthings.com/index.php/insert-unicode-characters
