Different languages have different rules for sorting letters. For
example, an 'e' with an accent (acute, grave, circumflex) could be
sorted as an unaccented 'e' -- that is, appearing after 'd' and
before 'f' -- in one language, but not in another.

The rules for the sorting order is usually encoded in the locale of
the given language. For the full horror show see:
