This sort of failure to perform input validation and/or escaping is also
a sign of bad software engineering in general. I recall an important CGI
form of my university refusing to let me submit because I input an ASCII
double quotation mark into a paragraph text field, and I don't think the
person who I reported it to cared. Lack of knowledge of Unicode is
likely not the root of such issues :-) (Is that good or bad?)
