// Hi. This file is now in utf-8. Thank you very much.
// Quick rundown on Maltese Unicode:
// ---------------------------------
// ċ = U+010B Ċ = U+010A 'ch'
// ġ = U+0121 Ġ = U+0120 soft G
// ħ = U+0127 Ħ = U+0126 voiced H [or 2nd letter of 'silent' għ]
// ż = U+017c Ż = U+017B 'dz'
//
// COMBINING MARKS:
// There is no combining mark for the slash (h/)
// but, U+0307 is the DOT ABOVE needed for ż, ċ, and ġ (in collation rules)
