Yes it is. Only if it is a first word in a sentence or name you should 
use "Ú". Also name of day is 'pondělí' (Monday) with small p

If I read description of "Month" pattern, it says "full mixed-case month 
name (blank-padded to 9 chars)". By my opinion this patter should keep 
standard locale behavior - it means for English February, for Czech únor.
