My question: Is

  12\i\n = 12in

?

Or in other words, at which level in the processing chain of CSS is the
quoting resolved to the actual Unicode character?

In the example above, the scanner generates a DIMENSION token for each
side of the equation, and at some later point it needs to be decided
whether it will become a DIMEN or LENGTH token with different results
depending on whether escape resolution is carried out before or after the
refinement step.

Regards, Christian.
