Turkish has two I's. Just remember that the 'dot' moves with it. So i
capitalizes to I with a dot over it, and I lowercases to an i without
the dot over it. It causes all sorts of issues with "to upper" type
comparisons. I was just wondering if this sort of issue hits any other
languages. Because we ran into this with config file parsing, I always
get scared when I see upper/lower based compares in a translated
context. Just being thourough
