[i18n-activity] UTF-16 code points for addressable characters

r12a has just created a new issue for 

== UTF-16 code points for addressable characters ==
11.1.1. Definitions

> addressable character
>     A character that is addressable by text positioning attributes 
and SVG DOM text methods. Characters discarded during layout such as 
collapsed white space characters are not addressable, neither are 
characters within an element with a value of none for the display 
property. Characters are **addressed by their index measured in UTF-16
 code units**, prior to applying any text-transform conversions, as 
described for the methods in the SVGTextContentElement interface; **as
 a result, a single Unicode character may map to multiple addressable 

not quite sure what this means, or what its implications are (esp. the
 bits i added bold to).
