Note: When possible, geographical names try to reflect the common modern
English names of the cities, not the local one. If a local spelling differs
from the English spelling only by using a different form of the same Latin
letter, the modified letter is used. This is according to R M Ritter, *The Oxford Guide
to Style*, Oxford University Press, 2002.
