ooh, OK thanks:-)

since I need to decode this in macros could you say when it switches fro

"the letter x"
 (in which case I need to use `x to get the number)


"the letter number "1D6FC"
(in which case the number is just there explicitly)

is it just a function of the Unicode range?

(luatex apparently always returns
"the letter x"
form even if x is a plane 1 character so I'll have to have separate
luatex/xetex code here)
