This means that the rules of XML conflict with the rules of Unicode. If
the string is a Unicode string, U+226F is canonically equivalent to
<U+003E, U+0338> and therefore any higher level protocol should treat
the two sequences as identical, rather than reject one of them as
causing the document to be ill-formed.
