| Could you name two please?

  not off-hand.  the rationale for ÿ that I have related here is that given
  to ECMA in 1982-6 when formulating and to ISO in 1987 when adopting ISO
  8859-1 through -4.

| I live in Belgium (no need to form a plural) and I've never seen it.

  _very_ good!  never though of it as a plural.  we call it "Belgia"
  in Norwegian.  I'm sure it's an editing glitch.  I hope it isn't receding
  language skills.  :)

  I have actually seen it, though, which is why I remember the minutes from
  the ISO work.  it's been a while (11 years), and I regret I'm not able to
  recall them in minute detail, anymore.
