Ok, now appearing on Sorting It All Out, over on the left side of the screen, are search links for Google and MSN, as well as a link for searching for Unicode information at http://FileFormat.Info (special thanks to Andrew for permission!).
I am not going to try to talk up either MSN Search or Google, I am sure you know what both of them are already.
But I will talk up the stuff at FileFormat.Info as it is very cool. You can search by code point in many forms (e.g. U+270D, ✍, 0x270D, etc.) as well as by Unicode name. You can even look at what other people have been looking for at http://www.fileformat.info/search/recent.htm if you are curious what sort of characters interest other people. A very cool site, one I would highly recommend any time you are looking up Unicode character information!
Special thanks to Drew for pointing out David Crump's site and the info there about search links. I was about 90% done with a different solution involving HTML forms that I could not seem to figure out on a Saturday afternoon, but that other solution plugged in quite nicely and appears to work well.
