characterize.vim - Unicode character metadata

Just came across and installed the characterize.vim plugin that in Vim modernizes the ga command to reveal character representation. Displayed are now

  • Unicode character names: U+00A9 COPYRIGHT SYMBOL
  • Vim digraphs (type after <C-K> to insert the character): Co, cO
  • Emoji codes: :copyright:
  • HTML entities: &copy;

So for example with the cursor on a letter ö hitting ga in command mode displays in the status line

<ö> 246, \366, U+00F6 LATIN SMALL LETTER O WITH DIAERESIS, ^Ko:, &ouml;
