Suppose that an author writes the tag name <Montréal> in his document,
composing the accented "é" with the two code points, an unaccented "e"
and a combining accent.

Now suppose that he writes "</Montréal>" using the pre-combined single
code point "é".

Is that document well-formed?

Suppose that he writes the start and end tags using the two code
points version, but his DTD uses the single code-point version. Is the
document valid? (Assuming it would be valid except for the suggested
possible difference.)
