how to parse unicode in java from google REST response

hi all,

i am using the google REST service in my java program to get search results.

the only part i am having trouble with is the reply from google has unicode markup in it.  this is an example URL passed back from Google:
\u003cb\u003eExperts\u003c/b\u003e-\u003cb\u003eExchange\u003c/b\u003e.com

i could easily write my own method that checks for unicode and replaces it with the 'human' characters, but this is only practical so long as there are only a very limited number of unicode characters that google will use.

any ideas of a better way to do this?  can java parse unicode?
