Just one: U+226F NOT GREATER THAN is canonically equivalent to > followed
by U+0338 COMBINING LONG SOLIDUS OVERLAY. Consequently, applying NF(K)C
to XML/HTML that contains this sequence such that the > is a closing
tag delimiter produces ill-formed XML/HTML. This is considered to be
a corner case, because there is typically no reason to separate U+0338
from whatever it applies to by markup.
This problem is called out in the W3C Character Model draft.
-- John Cowan firstname.lastname@example.org www.reutershealth.com www.ccil.org/~cowan If a soldier is asked why he kills people who have done him no harm, or a terrorist why he kills innocent people with his bombs, they can always reply that war has been declared, and there are no innocent people in an enemy country in wartime. The answer is psychotic, but it is the answer that humanity has given to every act of aggression in history. --Northrop Frye
