How to view a particular unicode character?

view story

http://askubuntu.com – I am currently using Quantal and I am trying to write in Oriya, a South Asian language. The problem is even though changing the keyboard layout to Oriya works in most cases, I am unable to type the Unicode character 0B5F (Oriya Character YYA). In Fedora, it used to work by using the combo Shift + /. I've changed one of the lines in the section xkb_symbols "ori" in /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/in from key <AB10> { [ U0b2f, U0040 ] }; to key <AB10> { [ U0b2f, U0b54 ] }; But when I type in gedit, I get a strange box-like character filled with 0B5F. How do I fix the keyb (HowTos)
