in reply to New Alphabet Sort Order

Have a look to see if anyone has done anything about Welsh. I believe that the Welsh alphabet starts A B C CH D DD E F FF, using letter combinations as single letters. I speak very little, but it was my father's first language. His father couldn't speak decent English until the day he died.

    You might also look at Spanish in the same way. As I recall from my Spanish classes at school, CH is treated as a first class letter for the purposes of ordering and gets a separate section in alphabetical lists such as dictionaries.
