`a`

and `b`

, and assign one representation to each, which we then print so that we can examine how they look.

In [1]:

```
a = "\u212b"
```

In [2]:

```
a
```

Out[2]:

In [3]:

```
b = "\u0041\u030a"
```

In [4]:

```
b
```

Out[4]:

If we check these two values for equality, Python tells us that they are not equal:

In [5]:

```
a == b
```

unicodedata.normalize('NFC',a) == unicodedata.normalize('NFC',b)
