 "These normalization rules are applicable for font names specified using the characters of ISOLatin1. They will likely be inapplicable for font names specified using other non-Latin characters."

What happens in the case of Latin-2 (Eastern Europe), which is similar to Latin1 but contains a few additional characters. Does a single non-Latin1 character cause normalization to be abandoned for the whole string? 

It seems like the only thing that wouldn't apply to all non-Latin1 font names is converting to lower-case, though that is still a relevant consideration for many other Latin characters outside Latin1, and for Armenian, Greek and Cyrillic. Why restrict to Latin1?
