% Transliteration is _currently_ a good idea as most fonts/applications do not
% have the correct diacritics for "t comma bellow" (U021A, U021B) and
% "s comma bellow" (U0218, U0219). Thus we currently use and compromise with
% "t cedilla" (U0162, U0163) - which, actually, does not belong to any
% language - and "s cedilla" (U015E, U015F) - which is _not_ correct for
% Romanian, but is correct for Turkish.
% This issue should be fixed in the future, when enough font and application
% support will be provided in current operating systems.

% Because in 1992 the Romanian Academy stated that within words the
% writing of the letter i> (i circumflex - U00EE) should be replaced
