    Do you use compatibility characters ? In that case it is normal that some code points are substituted by their NFC for transmission and use in HTML, XML and XHTML.
    Check the UCD to see if your original codepoints have been converted to their normalized form (there are quite a lot of those compatibility code points decomposed into their NFC code point, in the ideographic character blocks)
