    In Windows 2000 WordPad I can type a high surrogate code, press Alt+X, then
    type a low surrogate code, press Alt+X again and obtain the corresponding
    character. This does not seem to work in Windows XP WordPad. Is there a way
    to enable this functionality in XP WordPad?

    My guess is that the new RichEdit control might not accept surrogates in order
    to prevent isolated surrogates from being entered. I would appreciate any
    qualified comments.

    Thank you,
