    String.fromCodePoint = function fromCodePoint () {
        var chars = [], point, offset, units, i
        for (i = 0; i < arguments.length; ++i) {
            point = arguments[i]
            offset = point - 0x10000
            units = point > 0xFFFF ? [0xD800 + (offset >> 10), 0xDC00 + (offset & 0x3FF)] : [point]
            chars.push(String.fromCharCode.apply(null, units))
        }
        return chars.join("")
    }
