opensp (but not I think openjade) can (in theory) be built with support
for higher planes, but in practice most people (including me) use
pre-built binaries, and I haven't seen binary distributions that include
this support.

However failure of sp to support characters above 2^16 (which is a well
documented feature) is much softer than that of IE, you get spurious
warnings from the DTD but if the document does not actually use those
characters everything proceeds correctly. In the case of IE though you
get a fatal error on all documents as it reads the DTD and no valid
mathml file is processed at all.

as I say it's in open sp already but as a compile time option.
