Hmmm, is there documentation for this \XeTeXinputnormalization?  I can 
find some references to it in a web search, but no explanation of 
exactly what it does.  What does "normalization" mean (NFC, NFD,...)?  
Under what circumstances (besides the one Dominik saw) should this 
setting be used?  I don't want to go through printouts of 300 page 
documents looking for misplaced diacritics...
