Well, depends on how you look at it. If you are adhering strictly to the
standard, ISO 8859-2 is not suitable neither for Romanian nor for Turkish.
I believe this was also the rationale for ISO 8859-16 (Latin 10) proposal

This must have been corrected in Unicode 3.0.1 then. In 3.0 it was still

But this discussion is actually straying away from the issue of TeX font
