      See ":help i_CTRL-V_digit"

      Ctrl-V u is for Unicode codepoints in the BMP (i.e., U+0000 to U+FFFF). After
      that, use an uppercase U (i.e., shift-u):

      Ctrl-V U 0001D434

      (the initial zeros may be omitted if the sequence is followed by a keypress
      other than [0-9A-Fa-f].)

      A limitation of current versions of Vim is that codepoints above U+FFFF are
      displayed as question marks (with the proper width). The data is entered
      correctly into the file, and ga and g8 show the correct values. Someone
      (Edward L. Fox IIRC) said he'd look into it but I haven't heard from him about
      it recently.

      Best regards,
      Reality is just a convenient measure of complexity.
