    The proper encoding of the relevant ones in Romanian is s-comma-below
    and t-comma-below.

    The proper encoding of the relevant ones in Turkish is c-cedilla and s-cedilla.

    What the proper encoding in Gagauz is is problematic. It is a Turkic
    language so one would expect cedilla, but it is used in Romania and
    Moldova (and Bulgaria and Greece), so the conculusion as to which is
    preferred is not necessarily foregone.

    We are going to ask the Gagauzi.
