I vastly agree with this from @Edent about names and special characters.

We can throw Welsh names into the misspellings required – Siôn, Siân, Glyndŵr, to name a few.


@jim @Edent

I think these 'unusual characters' just aren't on this list. It's where this journey started in the sixties and its vestiges live on.



@gruff @Edent yep I wondered whether to mention ASCII and various pre UTF-8 bodges (anyone remember IS0-8859-14??) but thought I would not drag up that world of pain.
