Thatʼs how what initially is faulty Unicode implementation is distorted to the 
attention of inadvertent customers. It should be surprising but isnʼt really…
What about “Apple of Death”? Looks like something well-known.

Made curious again by Manishʼs blogpost and Dougʼs comment Iʼve tried it in 
my browser: The Telugu cluster is as inoffensive as any Unicode characters!
Works just fine on Windows. There are cases Iʼm not tempted to cease being 
conservative :)
