Essentially it means that the two 16-bit values that form a
surrogate-pair (representing a Unicode character on the Astral
Plane) is always treated as a single character.
In XML, surrogate-pairs can appear only in attribute values, #PCDATA
content, PIs, and comments; they are not allowed in element GIs,
attribute names, or the like.
