    At < http://av.wikipedia.org/wiki/ >, in a tech announcement of the Avar
    Wikipedia management team, it says:

    > Though it's not quite right, the users have come to an agreement to use
    > I (Latin letter as in India) instead of palochka. A later automatic
    > recoding can be done (by a bot), when more fonts will show palochka and
    > not a square, as it occurs now in most cases. Please, keep that in mind
    > when helping the Avar wikipedia. This policy may be changed later by

    This is quite like what happends in the Chuvash Wikipedia (and in other
    lesser Chuvash web endeavours) concerning U+0103/U+04D1, U+0115/U+04D7,
    and U+00FF/U+04F3 (and their respective upper case pairs).
