What we have
There is a link on our main page /home.html (and its translated
versions) pointing to Azerbaijani version of the page. The link
is included from /translations.include file:
<a href="/home.az.html">Azәrbaycanca</a> <!-- Azerbaijani -->
Where "ә" entity represents small letter schwa (which looks
like "e" turned upside down).
Could we change this "ә" into "ə"?
Both U+04d9 and U+0259 mean small letter "schwa", both have
the same graphical representation. The only different between
them is that U+04d9 is to be used in cyrillic scripts and
U+0259 is for "all usages of schwa in latin scripts other
than Pan-Nigerian alphabet".
We have the word "Az*rbaycanca", written in the Latin alphabet,
so we should use latin version of letter schwa, not cyrillic.
There are more fonts containing U+0259 than containing U+04d9,
so more visitors can see U+0259 character properly displayed
than for U+04d9.
