Sorry, you are all wrong. Whatshisname's name is ALREADY encoded in Unicode!

One encoding is the ugly spelling that y'all used in the UTF-8 e-mails that
make up this thread (and that can be seen also in the title of this humble
mail):
        0054 LATIN CAPITAL LETTER T
        0041 LATIN CAPITAL LETTER A
        0046 LATIN CAPITAL LETTER F
        004A LATIN CAPITAL LETTER K
        0041 LATIN CAPITAL LETTER A
        0050 LATIN CAPITAL LETTER P
or, in UTF-8:
        TAFKAP

Another slightly better encoding is the one used in many UTF-8 web pages
about The Recently Renamed Artist:
        004F LATIN CAPITAL LETTER O
        0028 LEFT PARENTHESIS
        002B PLUS SIGN
        003E GREATER-THAN SIGN
or, in UTF-8:
        O(+>

But the REAL encoding is this one, that I just came up with:
        01AC LATIN CAPITAL LETTER T WITH HOOK
        030A COMBINING RING ABOVE
        0335 COMBINING SHORT STROKE OVERLAY
        032C COMBINING CARON BELOW
or, in UTF-8:
        ƬS̵̬

Now, if you think it's worth, you can go on discussing if Unicode should
contain a PRECOMPOSED code point for The Grapheme Currently Spelled As
ƬS̵̬.

Ciao. Marco
