In Windows 2000 it was necessary to adjust a registry entry to enable
support for surrogates, which were disabled by default. What's the
situation with XP? I looked on the Microsoft developers web site but it
seems to be the same information as I saw when I was dealing with
Win2000 with no updates. (One of the pages references Unicode 2.0 . .
I did some tests and found that I can get characters outside the BMP in
WordPad under XP and in Word XP by typing the Unicode scalar value
followed by Alt-x; I don't recall ever changing any registry settings,
but has been a while since I upgarded from Win2000 to XP.
So am I correct in saying that, under XP, 1) no need to change registry
and 2) the Win200 method of typing two surrogates has been replaced by
typing the single scalar value plus Alt-x?
Thanks - David
