If you imagine Unicode as a mapping from integers to
characters, each integer is a code point. In other words
a code point is an integer between 0 and TOPCHAR.
Some code points are really mapped to characters. Some will
someday be used for characters. Some are guaranteed never
to be used for characters.
Take a recipe. Leave a recipe.
