What I meant was that it might be supplied in form C, but the user-agent
might be decomposing everything on input internally, causing a problem.
On your last point; surely you couldn't say <<U+0338>, because that would
be a semicolon with a slash through it in the source, no? It _would_ have
to be ≮. Or are we again searching only for base characters in
the source, ignoring combining marks?
