seems to require that certain uppercase Greek characters are
transformed by 'text-transform: lowercase' into two different
characters.  It has the following uppercase Greek characters paired
with *both* of the two following lowercase Greek characters:

Σ σ ς
Θ θ ϑ
Φ φ ϕ
Π π ϖ
Κ κ ϰ
Ρ ρ ϱ
Ε ε ϵ
Β β ϐ

Unless there's somehow a requirement that 'text-transform:
lowercase' canonicalize certain already-lowercase characters (ς, ϑ,
ϕ, ϖ, ϰ, ϱ, ϵ, ϐ), then I think this test is invalid and needs a
bunch of its character pairs removed.

(This list is also just from scanning the test visually; I might
have missed some.  I very nearly sent this email without the ϐ
included in the list.)
