I've encountered a weird one. But I don't remember if it was a surrogate or not. I just remember it didn't print to the console properly (it cooked it) or didn't save to source as a literal value or something.
It came up as whitespace, but only when I used these huge "not ranges" which are like [^a-z] (anything but a lower case letter)
that "anything" part created ranges all throughout the 16-bit unicode spectrum.
And that's when I ran into issues with one whitespace character.
Telling that there wasn't one for Germany. DoneMark is very close to how it's actually pronounced natively (in Norwegian and Swedish, at any rate; Danish has been referred to as a throat disease rather than a language).
If, a few years back, you told me I'd be listening to Chopin I'd tell you you're crazy.
I didn't care much for the many piano notes that don't always seem to have a head or tails.
But I heard this on the radio on my way to piano lessons.
It sounded familiar, but I don't know from where.
The first bars are the same as Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, but it's the bars after that that sounded familiar.
Well, it's one of Chopin's most famous pieces so I probably just heard it here and there.
Funny thing is that it was published after Chopin's death even though Chopin explicitly stated he didn't want anything published after he passed.
So this is my first SOTW of 2020.
Chopin would be proud
