A slight correction on this that isn't really all that  germane to the  
present conversation, but I felt I should make nonetheless and this  
correction helps improve understanding of the various issues.

Actually the first form is non-normalized too. The second string is  
conforming to both NFC and NFD. The third string is non-normalized as  

Just to provide further clarification each line is a separate string  
where the interior "this string" is an identical code point sequence  
irrelevant for normalization purposes. The angle brackets themselves  
however, have been encoded repeatedly as different code points despite  
Unicode offering no semantically distinct interpretation between the  
two code points.

Take care,
