+Summary: XmlTextWriter produces bogus output for UTF-16 surrogate characters
+Description of Problem:
+When outputting text containing UTF-16 surrogate characters, XmlTextWriter
+produces numeric character references for the surrogate code points instead
+of the actual referenced (21-bit) character. This output is not well-formed
+XML and can't be read back in by any compliant XML parser.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. writer.WriteElementString("a", "\ud800\udf39");
+Actual Results:
+Expected Results:
+How often does this happen? 
+Every time.
+Additional Information:
+This breaks the ability to round-trip read and write an equivalent XML
+document when you may contain characters outside the basic multilingual plane.
+Tested with Mono SVN r49929 and 1.1.8 release.
