A minor thing in a sidenote of
http://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-what-is-encoding.en.php:
"Unicode codepoint values are typically written in the form U+E9."

http://www.unicode.org/versions/Unicode5.0.0/appA.pdf says: "In running
text, an individual Unicode code point is expressed as U+n, where n is
four to six hexadecimal digits [...]. Leading zeros are omitted, unless
the code point would have fewer than four hexadecimal digits [...]."

You might want to change "U+E9" to "U+00E9".
