    First let's sort out what is happening with the letters that many of us
    are more familiar with, and with which there is clearly a problem as I
    showed from my example of Søren/Soren. Then we can consider whether the
    problem also applies to less familiar letters.

    But it is only a few characters if you first strip out those with
    canonical decompositions, which didn't really need to be there in the
    first place. These are the characters we are interested in.
