Description Răzvan Sandu 2008-07-22 08:52:24 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #456188 +++

Description of problem:


There are 4 incorrect characters in gucharmap's Latin section for the Romanian

Here are the characters that are incorrect for the Romanian language:

- Incorrect "S with cedilla below" (Unicode O1E) instead of correct "S with
comma below" (Unicode 0218);

- Incorrect "s with cedilla below" (Unicode O1F) instead of correct "s with
comma below" (Unicode 0219);

- Incorrect "T with cedilla below" (Unicode 0162) instead of correct "T with
comma below" (Unicode 021A);

- Incorrect "t with cedilla below" (Unicode 0163) instead of correct "t with
comma below" (Unicode 021B).

Please note that cedilla-below characters *are not* part of the Romanian
alphabet at all (it is simply a historical bug).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch gucharmap
2. At left, choose Latin set of characters.
3. Select "t with cedilla below" (U+0163)
4. At bottom, Romanian language is referred in text
5. Verify the same issue for the other three characters
6. There are no characters with comma-below in the Latin set

Actual results:

- wrong characters (cedilla-below) are reffered as being part of the Romanian
alphabet, instead of comma-below ones;

- there are no correct comma-below characters in the Latin set, to be used in
Romanian language.

Expected results:

- character map should include comma-below characters in the Latin set, along
with the cedilla-below ones;

- correct (comma-below) characters should be reffered as being part of the
Romanian alphabet, instead of the cedilla-below ones.

Best regards,

Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2014-06-02 13:05:20 UTC
Thank you for submitting this request for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. We've carefully evaluated the request, but are unable to include it in RHEL5 stream. If the issue is critical for your business, please provide additional business justification through the appropriate support channels (

Comment 3 Răzvan Sandu 2014-06-16 11:36:16 UTC
Correct glyphs for Romanian language (comma-below) ARE present in the Latin set of gucharmap 2.28.2 (CentOS 6.5).

However, incorrect glyphs (cedilla-below) are still enumerated as valid for the Romanian language, which is not true (the Romanian Academy clearly states that, in Romanian, diacritics are formed by adding a *comma* below s, S, t and T).
