In International sort ordering, ASCII sort order is changed as follows:
-Characters are sorted by alphabetical position: A and a are equal and come before B
-Characters with diacritical marks are expanded accordingly: umlauted a becomes ae for sort ordering, ß becomes ss, etc.
-Lowercase characters are applied first; for example, deJesus appears before Dejesus
-Norwegian, Danish, Swedish, 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.
