No need to declare anything.  And you probably don't need to do anything 
at all.

For more about NFC, see 
https://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-html-css-normalization and 
note that most of the warnings in that article related to use of class 
names, ids, and such, rather than normal content.

You're mostly likely to be prompting the warnings by use of combining 
characters (accents), rather than the characters you mention above.
