In Java, the sequence '\uxxxx' where xxxx is precisely 4
hex digits represents a datum of the Java type "char",
a numeric value ranging from 0 to 65535. Java as such does not
understand surrogates, though Java applications may.
Therefore, "\ud800\ude08" is a Java String containing two chars.
Java chars = Unicode characters are not the same as
Unicode abstract characters = 10646 characters.
