You're claiming that the character which ASCII calls "Capital Letter A" is a
different character from the one which Unicode calls "LATIN CAPITAL LETTER
A". (Actually I don't know what ASCII calls it, but it doesn't affect the
argument.) What makes you say that these are different characters? They
aren't different just because different documents give them different names.
