If you have a hex integer you could do the following:

    character = eval('"\\' + 'x' + hex_integer + '"');

I implemented an un-cgi encoding function the hard way like this, before
I found out about the 'unescape' function by looking at someone's code.

Where are functions like 'escape' and 'unescape' documented? They're
not mentioned in the JavaScript document at Netscape.
