            Bug ID: 211762
           Summary: Some locale definitions have defects
           Product: Base System
           Version: 10.3-STABLE
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Many People
          Priority: ---

Some of the locale definitions that come with 10.3 have defects.  These
[:lower:] matches 0xDF but [:alpha:]) doesn't with locales

0xBD should be [:upper:] but isn't in 'lv_LV.ISO8859-13'  

In case you are not aware of it, you can pretty much get out of the business of
supporting UTF-8 locale definitions by using the freely available POSIX ones
supplied by Unicode.  The recent releases, you have to generate them yourself
from the CLDR DB.  I can't seem to find the link to the tool that does it, just

Earlier versions had them pre-computed:
