i thought about it, but the page would get unwieldy.
To make it work well one might have to implement javascript so that mouse hover can popup a balloon with info about the char... my javascript isn't so great... maybe sometimes down the road.

but if you want a unicode char browser:

• Emacs xub-mode; A Unicode Browser
http://xahlee.org/emacs/unicode-browser.html

i feel that's the best unicode browser/palette/codemap kinda app there is. (in my humble opinion, more useful than Apple's Character palette, or Windows charmap.)

if you are not a emacs user, i'd even say download emacs and use it just for it just for browser unicode chars.
