So .NET uses 16bit unicode by default, and with the territory comes the possibility of 32 bit codes embedded as surrogate pairs.

That's all well and good even if it complicates things.

However, .NET provides no functions for operating on those 32-bit values.

No char.IsWhiteSpace(). No GetUnicodeCategory(), nada.

So what the hell are you supposed to do with these values?
