I have encountered it, but it was the result of someone running files 
through Unicode normalization tools at one setting after running their 
stylesheets through similar tools on a different setting.

It was good for some head-scratching, and I'm actually finding myself 
writing about similar issues now that I'm playing in a language (Erlang) 
which sort of supports Unicode but has a limited toolset.
