This bug (not allowing plane 1 characters) is _very_ serious.
Also, calling it a bug implies it was done accidentally which does not
appear to be the case. You don't even need to be explicitly using these
characters for it to bite you. For example _every_ valid MathML document
is rejected by IE6 (as it reports a fatal error on the MathML DTD).
