thank you, you are always a master at providing complete information.

To be fair I must say that the second example was aimed at a problem only
in Italy (not international), and as you know Italian is very different
from German and Spanish.

However I can reassure you, I have no intention of playing with bytes,
unfortunately I and the bytes do not have a good relationship. :-(
Proof of this is my unofficial suggestion to Benoit for the introduction of
a new ProperCase function. :-D
