Sorry. Whenever I wrote NFC, I meant NFD. Typo.

After some thinking, my current opinion is.

1. Maybe NFC is better than NFKD, but I am not a Unicode expert.

It is updated from NFKD to NFD.  I did not get the point.  Do you mean
NFC is better than NFD?

2. I think the real bug is the order of escaping and normalization.
The normalization (if a must) should be performed earlier right after
valStr is created and only performed on valStr. Otherwise the NFKD
normalization would generate new chars that need to be escaped. Again
I am not a Unicode expert and I don't know if NFC will also do the same.

I don't get the point.  The update is moving from NFKD to NFD.  No
NFKD normalization any more.

If 2) is fixed, whatever is correct in 1) does not matter much.

If we continue to use NFKD, normalization before escaping would result
in unexpected string as we talked for the hello-world example.

I this case, a comma appears but then it is escaped. You might say it is
unexpected, but at least after escaping, it becomes a legal string.

I did not get the point. A comma (",") should be escaped and it does get escaped and the string is legal. Do you mean "," (double bytes comma) should be converted to ","? Can you have more details?

It is something I want to avoid, so that it is fixed to use NFD
instead.  I think if we are moving to use NFD, it is does not matter
to escaping first or normalization first if I understand the UTF-8

Maybe, but IMO this is not the correct fix. The ultimate reason of the
bug is not the form chosen, but the order.

I'm not with you for this bug. The bug is complain about the escaping issue, but actually the character should not be escaped. So it is not an issue of escaping. So this fix is not trying to fix the escaping issue, but trying to fix the normalization issue.

4. Is it possible to perform normalization before escaping special

Yes.  I though about this case.  The current fix comes from the fact
that UTF-8 "Hello, world!" and "Hello, world!" should be different.
Parsing them as the same thing may result in unexpected serious issues.
