Please don't. We have switched all Romanian content to the new 
diacritics (commabelow instead of cedilla bellow) for Lenny (or at least 
all content that we were aware of), but this change requires us to use

As you already found out this won't work. You would have to use

$ iconv -f utf-8 -t iso-8859-16 release-notes.ro.sgml

and the text would be iso-8859-2 (don't ask me why). But anyway, this is 
not necessary or even wanted as explained above. Please use UTF-8 
everywhere for Romanian.

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
