    No. Encoded like that it may *look* like a roman three, but two of
    those are definitely not correct. Only U+2162 or its compatibility
    decomposition, U+0049 U+0049 U+0049 should be used. The other two
    are bad coding, just as using greek Iotas or combinations of U+2160
    and U+0049 would be.
