Hi marc,

this topic has already been discussed under "07/10/2006 07:47:28 Subject: Re:Železničné Stanice". You wrote: "19 records have just been updated with a replacement of ŭ by ů. All using your userid."

Well, I did not mention I found this number surprisingly small. Now I found evidence that some names in Czechia (at least two) escaped your batch. One of them is "Čápŭv Dvŭr".

I am not sure what happened. The wrong character is Unicode decimal chr(365), LATIN SMALL LETTER U WITH BREVE. The desired character is chr(367), LATIN SMALL LETTER U WITH RING ABOVE. Toponyms affected can be in any category.

Best,
Dan

This is rather embarassing. I changed it in the wrong direction the first time. (from right to wrong). This is the reason only 19 rows have been changed.

399 rows have now been updated.

Sort of my fault that I provided material for the wrong direction by previously correcting those 19 names manually Anyway, thanks! You're being very helpful, and this whole Geonames service is an amazing thing.
