Hi Alian,

Please correct me if I'm wrong. Did you imply, by using your name
as an example, that *no* locale changes the order of *any* Latin
letter at level 1? I thought, (perhaps I imagined ;-), that Mark's
fear was that somewhere there could be a locale which makes words
sorted differently even at the first level.

If in reality the answer to my question is "yes", then the locale
issue is handled by "tailoring" at lower levels. Correct?
