I was defining "every unicode character" loosely. There are certainly
display problems (there are display problems with wide characters on
non-CJK windows versions, too), but if you write a surrogate pair,
you'll get something that can copy to the clipboard as a surrogate pair,
and get the same thing that writing a non-BMP UTF-8 character with
codepage 65001 will give you. And you certainly won't get an error.
