that are 9+7 = 16 characters to indicate the language (and end of tag)
All of them are ASCII, therefore encoded as 1 byte utf-8 each.
Plane 14 requires 4 byte utf-8 each, and at least 3 characters
(two tag-letters and the end-tag) - this is 12 bytes.
Ok, this is less heavy, but not very much.
Or what do you think what "weight" in this context means?!?
