Hello Collin,
 
The character for 'no, not' is U+4E0D (see 
http://www.unicode.org/cgi-bin/GetUnihanData.pl?codepoint=4E0D
<http://www.unicode.org/cgi-bin/GetUnihanData.pl?codepoint=4E0D&useutf8=
true> &useutf8=true )
 
The character in the Character Model is a rare character from the
supplementary character range provided to us by John Jenkins, who has
worked on the ideographic additions to the Unicode Standard.
 
Having said that, it may be worth us choosing a different character as
an illustration to avoid the possibilty of confusion.  It certainly does
look similar to U+4e0d.
 
Thanks for the comment.
RI

Subject: About the Chinese character U+233B4 in the example of Section
3.4



{{
EXAMPLE: Consider the string  A sequence of four characters: An
ideographic supplementary character (meaning 'stump of tree'), NOT EQUAL
TO, LATIN SMALL LETTER Q, and COMBINING CARON
<http://www.w3.org/TR/charmod/images/surrogateDiffQcaron.gif> comprising
the characters U+233B4 (a Chinese character meaning 'stump of tree'), 
 
}}
 
I'd like to point out that the Chinese character means "no" instead of
"stump of tree", though the Chinese characterreally denotes "wood" or
"tree". :-)
 
Thank you for reading this.
 
Cheers,
Collin
