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 (®).
