How to input UTF16 over 20000 (ISO /IEC 10646)

Under win 10,
some UTF-16 chinese characters are working fine
with RPGLE /RPG... and Display File
But some chinese character with "ISO/IEC 10646" value > 20000, such as "ISO/IEC 10646" = 21884

We cannot input and display
Could you fix it ?



Regards


Use Case:

For example,
㜜 - UTF-16, Hex 37 1C, it is fine
𡢄 - UTF-16, Hex D8 46 DC84 , problem (cannot display)

    The one character they list, they say it is 21884. Is that decimal or hex?
    - '21884' is a code in "ISO/IEC 10646" for a Universal Coded Character.
    - I believe it is just a code.
    - You may check with IBM wet site about doc "Traditional Chinese Graphic Character Set CP00835.pdf) as in the attachments.

    Also, I need a list of all the characters that are not working.
    - Most of coded list in "ISO/IEC 10646" over '20000'
    - Ref: http://unicode.org/L2/L2010/10038-fcd10646-main.pdf
    - Or you may search from web "ISO/IEC 10646"
    - Please also check the links in the use case

    Are they converting them to an EBCDIC CCSID and that is not displaying on a 5250 emulator?
    - I am not sure it convert or not in emulator
    - What we do is
    > In PC with Win 10 (Tranditional Chinese), using "ACS
    > Input the character "㜜" [UTF-16, Hex 37 1C], it displays fine as "㜜"
    > Input the character "𡢄" [UTF-16, Hex D8 46 DC84], just display a square

    If its an emulator, which emulator are they using?
    More about emulator "ACS" using
    - acshod-B20200702_130634 (32bits)
    - 11.0.8.B20130530
    - version 1.1.72
    - build ID 7422, October 18, 2017 12:45:24 PM CST

    The CAAC has reviewed this requirement and recommends that IBM view this as a high priority requirement that is important to be addressed. UDT is a critical component to the finance industry and needs to be fully supported.

    Background: The COMMON Americas Advisory Council (CAAC) members have a broad range of experience in working with small and medium-sized IBM i customers. CAAC has a key role in working with IBM i development to help assess the value and impact of individual RFEs on the broader IBM i community, and has therefore reviewed your RFE.
