UN/LOCODE version 2015-2 has been released [1], and the Manual still
contains the following about character sets:

"27. Place names in UN/LOCODE are given in their national language
versions as expressed in the Roman alphabet using the 26 characters of
the character set adopted for international trade data interchange, with
diacritic signs, when practicable (cf. Paragraph 3.2.2 of the UN/LOCODE
Manual). International ISO Standard character sets are laid down in ISO
8859-1 (1987) and ISO10646-1 (1993). (The standard United States
character set (437), which conforms to these ISO standards, is also
widely used in trade data interchange)."

Spot the errors.
