      Description

      Recently I had a problem with Unicode characters and some backend system that does not support Unicode.
      I searched the Web for existing source and found some which I reused for translating to/from Unicode escapes, so I could store the data in the backend system without garbling characters.

      Now I just found out about StringEscapeUtils.escapeJava() and .unescapeJava() which does exactly this and works perfectly!

      The Apache community never seizes to amaze me, well done - but please do advertize these handy utility functions more publicly! Why do only the "front end" projects get all the attention, when there are such jewels hiding away in the dark? ))
      Thanks for another great library.
