The maximum is 0x10FFFF, one less than 17 * 2^16, which is the
same as the range covered by UTF-16.

You may be able to get away with using the UTF-16 16-bit words as if
they were characters.  That is, it may not matter to your code that
some characters consist of two 16-bit words.  In which case you can be
sure they are all less than 0xFFFE.
