The only translitterations currently in mkgmap are from unicode to ascii.
It is possible to target other code-pages if it makes sense and you
can supply me with the transliteration table.

I'm not sure how you get lowercase letters.  Mapsource shows upper-case
letters in lowercase, but they are always upper case in the map itself.

What version are you using?  There was a problem with an older version
where you only saw the first letter of each word on certain devices.
