Strange Behavior by Win IE 6 displaying bad UTF-8

     From my experiments, and based on Richard Wordingham's explanation, it
    appears that Windows IE 6 considers the following 4 UTF-8 sequences
    completely equivalent as far as display is concerned: E1 BC 90, E1 FC
    D0, E1 FC 90, E1 BC D0. Only the first is valid UTF-8, but they all
    produce the same character. Presumably there many other similar sets
    like this.

    Is this kind of behavior considered to be generally OK or a bug in the
    particular app?
