Description Konstantinos Margaritis 2006-01-18 22:44:59 UTC
We would like to do some linguistic work on ancient Greek. It is written using 
polytonic characters and in reality it's a very different language than modern 
greek (el_GR). We thought that having a separate locale was necessary and 
since there already was an ISO-639 standard (grc) we set out to write the 
actual locale. 
It's based on el_GR (only some names are different, not necessary to change 
anything, it's about ancient Greek not ancient Greece anyway :-)

I concur the addition of the Ancient Greek (katharevousa) locale.

Apart from linguists (University departments/Classics) that may be interested
for localised desktop, the Greek Orthodox clergy and monasteries actively use
Ancient Greek for their documents.

Various fields like d_t_fmt are not using the <Uxxxx> format.
