    Isn't it true that Croatian uses a Latin script while Serbian uses

It is true Croatia uses an extended Latin script while Serbia uses the
Cyrillic script.  The same words can be written in either script.  The
example of the newspaper that changes scripts from page to page is
interesting--I suspect it does this to make a political point about
language and the nationalists.

Emacs needs to support the two scripts more or less separately, but we
should not call them "Serbian" and "Croatian" as if those were two
different languages.  That would support the nationalists' fiction.
