Tomabaem is a substitute for the System's Character Palette, at least for people focusing on the so-called CJKV languages (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese). Tomabaem, like Unicode, is cross-language. Whatever you are looking for related to Chinese characters, there's a high chance that Tomabaem has a way of looking it up, whether it's the Cantonese pronunciation, the UTF-16 codepoint, the radical, the meaning, or the character itself, which you can copy/paste or drag'n'drop from another document. It uses UniHan.txt file from the Unicode Consortium as the basis of the data shown.

Release Notes: Look-up can be done by entering a Chinese character in the Input area or by dragging a character from another window and dropping it on the display area. Characters displayed in the selector or the "Past searches" listbox can be dragged'n'dropped to another application that accepts text. All past searches can be exported at once to a file as XML or HTML. Tomabaem can now access http://www27.brinkster.com/hanosoft/default.asp to check on the Vietnamese pronunciation of a character.
