What happened is that I grabbed the file, Appendix A to the Boost MPL
book as an html page, which used to be hosted at Boostpro, from the
wayback machine Internet archive. Then I massaged it a bit to remove all
the wayback machine cruft, but I think it had the Unicode in it once I
had grabbed it.

After that I copied the title from that page to links in two other
preprocessor pages, thus propagating the Unicode. The GUI HTML editor I
was using never flagged the Unicode as anything unusual so I really
didn't see it.

I have applied Tom Kent's the PR to 'develop' and will no doubt merge it
to 'master' fairly shortly.

The preprocessor docs were all written by Paul directly as HTML and it
would be too much work at this point to change it to quickbook, although
I love the latter.
