[Mono-list] Just to clarify it: strings in .NET are in UTF-16 not UCS-2

C# code like this:

  string x = "\U00010001Test";
  foreach(char c in x.ToCharArray())
    System.Console.Write(" " + ((int)c).ToString("X4"));

When compiled with csc and run in MS runtime, will output:
D800 DC01 0054 0065 0073 0074

The first 2 'char's listed (D800 DC01), are the surrogate pair to specify 
32-bit character 0x10001.
