    I thought this was a simple straigntforward matter; and would work
    always. Has anybody looked into these issues?

    And Peter, is this answer valid only for PUA <> encoding mapping?

    What I have in mind is a slightly different context - if a sequence is
    mapped to a single character, it is supposed to work always, right?
