    Unfortunately, this is not a legitimate IDS. On p. 427 ( http:// ), the Standard states
    that no legitimate IDS can contain more than 16 Unicode code points,
    but yours contains 18. A silly restriction, to be sure, but that's
    the way the Standard is currently written. So I guess at the moment
    there's no way to represent this character in legitimate Unicode?
