You should know that there are people who claim that using u+2019 in
"l’arrivée" is incorrect, and that one should write "lʼarrivée"
instead.  The rationale is that u+2019 is a punctuation character, so
it doesn't belong in the middle of a word.  There was a long
discussion about that on the Unicode list a couple of months ago.
