    Personally, I won't rate the special design too high -- alltho I found
    a more detailed map of Romania wich exhibits both a burg-abbreviature
    for Klausenburg (romanian: Cluj) and the romanian city Bezau with a with
    breve. The breve in the abbreviature is of the fancy >>semi-cyrillic<<
    shape, the one in Bezau is a vanilla breve. And there are very fancy
    commata below the romanian s and t.
