I don't recall -- does CharacterTest say that \u2102 is upper case or
If you read the online JDK 1.2 docs, you'll notice that isLowercase
has two possible definitions. One is `Ll'. The other is a long
sequence of conditions.
Sun told me that `Ll' is the correct answer. I'm not sure I believe
them. So it's still possible that this bug could lie anywhere: in
Sun's doc, Sun's implementation, or our test.
Anyway, by analogy I'd assume their uppercase documentation is
similarly incorrect (or not).
Opinions, preferably with supporting documentation, solicited.
