One correction -- this has nothing to do with canonical equivalence.
This (as for all other ISO/IEC 8859-1 encoded characters)
is an example of two different character encodings each
encoding the same abstract characters.
Canonical equivalence is a relationship between alternate
Unicode coded character representations; it is not a
relationship between Unicode characters and characters
in other character encodings.
