OK. Looks like I responded too soon. So in an effort to do your response justice. I'll try to give it a proper response, this time. :)

in thread How best to avoid mojibake, when attempting to automatically convert documents to utf-8?
The article unicode - Why does modern Perl avoid UTF-8 by default? was extremely informative. A big help -- thanks!
brian d foy's Unicode-Tussle utilities, could quite possibly go a long way to helping me in my current quest. Thanks again.
In the case of Unicode-Tussle. I should be able to use some of them to help, at least determine what ever I'm parsing/gulping/slurping/chomping, claims it's "code points" are. At least they'll likely help creating initial phases of testing. Or maybe provide some bits I can include in a larger, more conclusive test. It's early, but looks promising. Well, I've got more research to do. Thanks again for the great links, Your Mother!
Yes. What say about me, is true.
