Andrei Zmievski's Blog:
My name is not really Andrei (Transliteration)
July 31, 2006 @ 18:06:08

Andrei Zmievski, clarifying a misconception from his presentation at this year's OSCON, has posted this information about how transliteration support will be in PHP6.

Ryan Kennedy commented on the presentation I gave at OSCON; specifically, about the transliteration support in PHP 6. I wanted to follow up and explain exactly what it is and, unfortunately, what it is not.

Ryan was excited about the possibilities presented by transliteration, especially as it applies to representing foreign names in reader's native script (think mail readers).

Andrei explains that the functionality is a bit more tricky than it seams. Due to some issues with the English language, things can get pronounced so many different ways that it can throw the end result off.
