Romanian, both.

This is a well-known issue. Romanian delegates weren't careful enough when
the ISO 8859-2 standard was in preparation, so cedilla slipped in place of
comma below, although the latter form is preferred in the Romanian
typography. It was later amended in the ISO10646/Unicode version 3, which
includes S and T with comma below on positions 0x0218-0x021B, apart from
the S with cedilla on 0x015E/0x015F. T with cedilla was retained in the
ISO10646 standard on 0x0162/0x0163, although it is to my knowledge used in
no language.

With kind regards,
