In Finnish, names of weekdays are not capitalized. Django's templating system translates unabbreviated names of weekdays correctly (e.g. "maanantai" for "Monday"), but abbreviations are capitalized, i.e.

Ma, Ti, Ke, To, Pe, La, Su

when the correct form would be

ma, ti, ke, to, pe, la, su

The strftime() methods/functions in both Python and PHP handle this correctly (at least on Linux), but Django looks up translations from django/conf/locale/fi/LC_MESSAGES/django.po which contains incorrect abbreviations.
