What are you refering to? I don't know of anyone who has done that.
Please forgive me, perhaps I'm not using the right terminology, but
clearly "A" has been mapped to "a" already.
Try using nameprep found at --
-- and see what happens when you enter a HEX string of 0041 (A). You
will find that it has been mapped to 0061 (a) -- as it has always
But please note that every glyph that looks like "A" has also been
mapped to 0061 (a). For example, from the newer Unicode Mathematical
Alphanumeric Symbols table every "A" (1D400 to 1D670 ) has been
mapped to 0061 (a) as well. I believe there are thirteen in all,
namely bold, italic, bold-italic, script, bold-script, fraktur,
double-struck, bold-frakture, sans-serif, sans-serif-bold,
sans-serif-italic, sans-serif-bold-italic and monospace A's have been
mapped to 0061 (a).
That's what I meant about characters being mapped to others -- is
there a better way to say this?
