Tony Graham scripsit:

On the contrary. UTF-16 is a standard representation that XML
systems must accept (clause 4.3.3), and the representation of the
characters #x10000-#x10FFFF in UTF-16 (which is the same as
Unicode 2.x) is precisely a surrogate pair.
Individual surrogate characters are excluded, but they have no meaning
in UTF-16 anyway.

That works too.
