[fpc-devel] Function for translation "normalized" Unicode strings into strings with composed characters?

The canonic decomposition (NFD) can be performed with 
UnicodeData.NormalizeNFD function in FPC, but I don't think there is an 
implementation of canonical composition (NFC) in FPC. It would be great 
to have one!

On Windows, you can perform both NFD and NFC via NormalizeString API
