I do not expect neither Notpad nor Thunderbird to apply normalization
(cf. <http://www.unicode.org/faq/normalization.html>, and
<http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr15/>) to the data. I rather guess
that they simply apply the desired encoding to the data.
In Notepad, you would chose "Unicode Big Endian" (i. e. UTF-16BE)
encoding to store the unaltered data, as delivered from the keyboard
In Thunderbird, you would chose "Unicode (UTF-8)" encoding, and
"quoted-printable". I am using the German Thunderbird version, so
I can only guess the menu items you will have to use:
the encoding is under settings/encoding; the quoted printable under
options/settings/general (or something similar). With these settings,
Thunderbird will convert the text into UTF-8, and then apply the
MIME quoted-printable encoding.

The Unicode charts exhibit the Unicode Scalar Values in hex;
any hex dump of UTF-16BE data will directly compare to the charts.
To compare UTF-8 data to the charts, you would have to reverse
the UTF-8 encoding first; cf.
In quoted-printable, you get the hex value of each non-ASCII byte
in three characters, e. g. "=FC" for the byte FC (hex).
