>The Universal Character Set (UCS) [ISO10646, Unicode] covers a very
>wide repertoire of characters. The IETF, in [RFC 2277], requires that
>future IETF protocols support UTF-8 [RFC 2279], an ASCII-compatible
>encoding of UCS. The wide range of characters included in the UCS has
>lead to some cases of duplicate encodings. This document proposes
>that in IETF protocols, the class of duplicates called canonical
>equivalents be dealt with by using Early Uniform Normalization
>according to Unicode Normalization Form C, Canonical Composition (NFC)
>[UTR15]. This document describes both Early Uniform Normalization
>and Normalization Form C.
