Hi Masayoshi,

I was thinking "but all you have to do to get the actual value
is follow the @link to the constant (e.g. MAX_SURROGATE)"
but I tried that but... for example...
does not document the hex value.

I think *that's* where we should move the description of the hex value.
I propose to modify my patch in that way.

(The hex values are also documented in the Character class comment)
