    Thanks for all explanations,

    Keeping the A with ring exemple, does it means that compatibility
    characters can be identified according to Unicode charts ?

    By exemple, in the case of \u212B ANGSTROM SIGN, it is documented :
    "preferred representation is 00C5 Å latin capital letter a with ring".

    Is that a clear indication that \u212B is actually a compatibility
    character and then should be, according to XML 1.1 recommandation,
    replaced by the \u00C5 character ?
