The glyphs and descriptions of the letter and symbol phi do not
agree with Unicode and ISO/IEC 10646-1.  Unicode states that U+03D5
GREEK PHI SYMBOL should be used for the straight form, and that U+03C6
GREEK SMALL LETTER PHI be used for the curly form.

These two forms were swapped in Unicode 3.0, as noted in Unicode
Standard Annex #28.
