Re: [PATCH] Fix Charset comment in fi_FI, fi_FI at euro


Hi,

ANGSTROM SIGN is specified in the standard to sort it alongside with å/Å.

There is also a recent proposal to extend the auxiliary character set
(that's the closest translation I came up with, it's
"lisämerkkivalikoima" in Finnish in the proposal) with characters that
might be needed when processing texts in the Finnish context and the
proposal contains several non-ISO-8859-15 characters, see
http://www.kotoistus.fi/kannanotot_html/avoimet/lisamerkisto-2013.

So I think it's better not to suggest using ISO-8859-15 any more.

Thanks,
