Not this one, I suspect:

MathML uses plane 1 characters ('cause when we asked Unicode/ISO for more
Math Characters, that's where they put them:-) MSXML (and most other
native XML parsers I've tried) can eat those OK, but some older parsers
(eg sp based tools such as nsgmls) can't handle characters above 2^16.
