The former. I copied and pasted from TZDB’s source. I had originally
composed it in the source by typing “C-x 8 RET DEGREE SIGN RET” into Emacs.
Another way I could have typed it would have been “Caps-Lock o o” since
I have Caps Lock bound to Compose in GNOME. However, Emacs supports
arbitrary Unicode code points better than GNOME does so I tend to do
things the Emacs way even though it’s more painful for this particular case.
In writing this email I noticed that we don’t need UNUSUAL_OK_IPA any
more. That macro was put in when the ‘europe’ file had the commentary
“common pronunciation in Ukrainian, namely [ˈkɪjiu̯] (IPA)”. Since the
commentary no longer opines on how to pronounce “Київ” in Ukrainian it
no longer uses “u̯”, so I installed the attached further patch.
