At the risk of exposing more of my ignorance, let me rephrase that:

Rev will see the characters as numeric values and return the same 
list of numeric values; but will the first character always display 
as "Ù" and the last character as "ü" on all Rev platforms & all fonts?

I checked the Rev Dictionary for "diacritical" but the three 
references (find, toLower, toUpper) weren't much help.
