public class ADirtyOne

//char a = '\u000A';
}
An attempt to compile the above class
1. will complete successfully.
2. will compile sucessfully but with a warning message.
3. will not compile - complains on an invalid expression.

This may amaze many a people at first sight.
Check this: http://www.w3.org/TR/MathML2/bycodes.html#U0000A
The unicode character u000a is the line feed (newline) character. That ends the comment in your code and the '; fall to next line resulting in compile error.

The reason of course is that Unicode characters are translated as a String is read and before the compiler sees it. Thats why there are escaped characters such as \n for the control codes.
