browsers and unicode surrogates

I have added a couple more variations of the Unicode supplementary
characters example page, for utf-16 and utf-32.

I thought that because support for utf-8 supplementary characters was
weak, that utf-16 would be weaker.
So I was surprised that Netscape 4.7 displays the UTF-16 page.

I didn't find any browser (of IE, Netscape, Opera) that displays utf-32.
(I view it locally so transmission of nulls wasn't an issue.)

Links to the example pages are at:

If there is interest in a utf-16 version of the BMP page I can add that
as well.
