    could someone confirm if i've got this correct, or not please?:

    a 'code unit' could be the same as a 'code point', but there again it
    might not be. it's possible that several 'code units' are required to
    make up a 'code point'? (so code units can be the same size or smaller
    than a code point, but not the other way round)?
