    Arrggh... you are right, of course, and I am guilty of the same mistake
    I've seen many times before.

    Of course, the string I gave as an example was meant to be encoded in
    Windows code page 1252, not in ISO 8859-1 as I said. U+0099 doesn't
    even have a name.

    It is still possible to come up with a plausible example of text that is
    both valid UTF-8 and plausible Latin-1, and I need to find one -- not
    only because my current example is Windows-specific, but also because
    Nestlé is not even a trademark (™) but a registered trademark (®).
