Thank you very much for your info.  It's a very good aproach.

When I used the "NFD" option, I came across many errors on these and
possibly other codes: \xba, \xc9, \xcd.

I tried to use "NFKD" instead, and the number of errors was only about
half a dozen, for a universe of 600000+ names, on code \xbf.

It looks like I have to do a search and substitute using regular
expressions for these cases.  Or is there a better way to do it?
