If you ever need to get a character returned from a unicode string (such as "U+2A601") you can use the following method:

This will take care of not only UTF-16, but UTF-32 characters as well.

<pre lang="c#">public static string ConvertUnicodeToCharacter(string unicodeValue)
            int unicode = int.Parse(unicodeValue.Substring(2), NumberStyles.HexNumber);
            if (unicodeValue.Length == 7) //UTF-32
                return char.ConvertFromUtf32(unicode);
            return ((char)unicode).ToString(); //UTF-16

Have fun!
