If you install the Chinese - Taiwan Traditional Unicode keyboard, you
can type the hex in (for the UTF-16 code points) that way. I use it
pretty regularly. This trick works with any program that is IME friendly
(i.e. most of them) and you can make it easy to turn on/off by setting
the hotkeys for switching keyboards.
Hope that helps.
