Unicode surrogate block in XML?
The XML 1.0 spec explicitly excludes the Unicode surrogate characters from XML documents (production 2). It now seems, from information I've picked up on the Unicode web site, that surrogate characters are likely to play a more important role in the future, since the available 16-bit characters are almost all used up. (Unicode 2.0 has 18,134 spares but Unicode 3.0 has only 7827 spares. The trend is clear.) Is any thought being given in W3C to allowing surrogate characters in XML documents?
