The message comes from printing to a tk text widget (the IDLE shell),
not from creating the 1 char string. c = '\U0001d11e' works fine. When
you have problems with creating and printing unicode, *separate*
creating from printing to see where the problem is. (I do not know if
the brand new tcl/tk 8.6 is any better.)
The windows console also chokes, but with a different message.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
File "C:\Programs\Python33\lib\encodings\cp437.py", line 19, in encode
UnicodeEncodeError: 'charmap' codec can't encode character '\U0001d11e'
ion 0: character maps to <undefined>
Yes, this is very annoying, especially in Win 7.
