FWIW, I would follow Jon is using the spelling, _Soeze_, in imitation
of the common method of transliterating German, simply because, AFAIK,
the question as to what diacritics can be used in a post without

I wouldn't consider use of that spelling to be any kind of comment in
the orthography of Turkish.
