Native2ascii on web

Java folks know that in order to make sure your source code survives on multiple platform, you need to encode anything outside of ASCII (or Latin1) in the Java escape format (\uxxxx). This can be a laborious job, since you need to use a command line tool, native2ascii to do the conversion.

I got tired of doing the conversion manually (the alternative would be NOT to run my unit tests in non-ascii characters, but that's clearly the path to i18n hell), so I whipped up a small tool that can do the conversion directly on the web for you.

Enjoy; please comment here or directly in email.
