Comment:
The table at http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/named-character-references.html (8.5
Named character references) uses the U+XXXXX notation (with 5 digits) to
indicate codepoints.  The usual convention is to use U+XXXX for BMP characters
(i.e. U+0000 - U+FFFF), and U+XXXXX and U+XXXXXX for non-BMP characters (i.e.
U+10000 - U+10FFFF).  The rest of the spec also seems to use U+XXXX.
