4.5 Interpreting datatypes

When strings are parsed from the CSV data are they first normalized before
being placed into JSON strings? For example, are the strings normalized
into Unicode Normal Form C.

It is recommended that text not be normalized if it is already in a Unicode
encoding. If the text is not in Unicode then a normalizing transcoder
should be used and the Unicode Normal Form C should be used.
