I am sorry, but I really am struggling to understand what you are asking for.
Normalize it where and for what? Could you please elaborate and be more
specific in your questions? Normalization is simply replacing one character
for another, more generic one. This is generally used in things such as
information retrieval to make it easier to search for a string in a large body
of text.

So, as you can see, I can't tell if you are simply talking about an editor
automagically normalizing TEH MARBOOTA to a HEH or if you are talking about
this being inside of an application that is IR related.
