    Very likely, he did not intend that. But if you ever accuse someone of nationalism, be aware that this has a specific political meaning. And if that person is NOT a nationalist, he will very reasonably take offense.
     
    And:
    "Joel has a good point that the box has the letters, "CHO-T," on it.  It
    is natural to then advertise it as a "CHO-T," so that the buyer is not
    confused when he receives a "CHO-T" but had ordered a "SNO-T."  That
    leads to suspicion on the buyer's part regardless of whether this is
    explained before the sale or after the sale or shipment."
     
    Some people will consider this a good point, and some others will consider it literally "ignorant". Surely there is a compromise here. Call it CHO-T/SNO-T?? Any customer purchasing a Russian sextant should, I think, be able to comprehend the simple matter that CH is Cyrillic for SN. This isn't rocket science. Indeed, wouldn't they enjoy their purchase *more* if they learn what the letters represent and that CH/SN means "Navigational Sextant"?
