[sword-devel] Dotted and dotless I in Turkish & Azerbaijani, etc.

Please first read this article.


Languages such as Turkish and Northern Azeri have both dotted and dotless
letter I in their Latin-based alphabets.

This has implications for letter case. 
Such alphabets break the familiar case relationship between uppercase I and
lowercase i. 
Instead they have as a upper and lower case pairs:

I and ı  
İ and i

Does sword_icu properly address this in terms of case folding? 
How does each front-end application address these issues, e.g. in terms of
case-insensitive searches, etc?

cf.  We already have two Turkish Bible modules, and work is about to start
on a Bible module for Northern Azeri.

Working on the Go Bible for the Azerbaijani translation is how I became
alerted to this issue.
