    Code points above FFFF are represented by pairs of code values in the
    Surrogates Area, not in the Private Use Area.
    Unipad should be able to show those Surrogate Area values.

    The code points of the blanks on the website are really in the PUA.

    The second and third char are U+E596 and U+E58E

    I can access the fonts at:

    Only two of the fonts work on my Windows 98 SE
    ICS3 and ICS4

    If I copy the chinese text to wordpad and change the font the second and the
    third char become chinese chars.
    But in ICS3 they look very different from ICS4
