Notes:

Observe the #14 row of both tables:

The Notes column in the second table describes a different third Unicode code point than what appears in the Password column of the first table. As the first table is a direct excerpt from RFC7613, it should not be modified and so the second table should be corrected to contain a proper corresponding example.
