    The fact that they *could* doesn't change the reality that they
    currently *don't*. Serbians will end up with a hodgepodge of
    inconsistent data being fed by inconsistent solutions.

    IMO, this should be addressed as a font and markup/styling problem, not
    as a character representation problem.
