Hi, I'm trying to convert text in "numerical character reference" format to javascript escape (\u) format.  for example 소개 should become \uC18C\uAC1C.

I need to do this conversion in a Javascript routine or PHP.

Any ideas?  I'm lost

If it is a string:



 <script>
 function d2h(d) {return d.toString(16).toUpperCase();}
 function ncr2utf(str) {
   var chars = str.replace(/\&\#/g,'').split(';')
   for (var i=0;i<chars.length;i++) if (chars[i]) chars[i]="\\u"+d2h(parseInt(chars[i]));
   return chars.join(''); 
 }
 document.write(ncr2utf("&#49548;&#44060;")) //  should become \uC18C\uAC1C.
 </script>
