In International sort order
ing, ASCII sort order
is changed as follows:
are sorted by alphabet
ical position: A and a are equal and come before B
-Characters with diacritical marks
are expanded accordingly: umlaut
ed a becomes ae for sort ordering, ß becomes ss, etc.
characters are applied first; for example, deJesus appears before Dejesus
, and Finnish
å, Å and umlauts are placed at the end of the regular alphabet
for those countries
This sort order differs from ASCII sort ordering.
