Today is Þornsday. Apologies to those to whom the Internet and their
platforms do not convey the first letter of that name as a capital
On Þornsday, 1994-06-09, CEN/TC304 resolved that in a default
multilingual European sort, ÞORN shall be sorted as a separate letter
after Z. Subsequently, ISO/TC37/SC2/WG3 resolved that in its work on
alphabetical ordering, ÞORN shall be sorted as a separate letter after
Z. Most recently, JTC1/SC22/WG20 resolved that in its work of producing
a default multilingual sort for ISO/IEC 10646, ÞORN shall be sorted as a
separate letter after Z.
