I recently released a new jQuery plugin Align Column that aligns HTML table columns based on the (U.S.) decimal point – or whatever you want. Here's a brief story of why I wrote it.

I recently published amp-what.com. I created it to solve a problem I have: trying to remember (or google) character entity numbers or names. For example, our last project used the entity » (»). Try googling this if you don't remember the name! Now, with this tool, I can just type ">>" and the character, symbol and number appear.
It turned out to be surprisingly fun to play with. I discovered chess pieces, planet symbols, all sorts of boxes. There are a surprising number of icons to play with. What have you found that surprise you?
