    One of the tools I use for building fonts requires that codepoints for
    Plane 1 characters be expressed as surrogate pairs, rather than as scalar
    values. I'm hoping this will change on the next release, since the scalar
    values are a lot easier to work with, but in the meantime I need to figure
    out the easiest way to find the correct surrogate pair values for any given
    scalar value. Is there a comprehensive list somewhere, or an easy
    alogorithm (easy for a non-programmer)? How about a web-based form, into
    which someone could enter scalar values and receive back surrogate pairs?
