RE: lag time in Unicode implementations in OS, etc?

There are a couple of reg keys that can do part of the enabling. I think the
Windows team will release a support pack of some kind once they've got the
support final (turning on the reg keys simply enables part of the support -
there are still fonts, IMEs, and sorting)

How do you turn *ON* surrogate support in Win2K?
(Please pardon me if it is blatantly obvious; I'm not running Win2000.)
