German-Library Collation

I have some questions about a sort ordering known as German-Library
Collation. I had asked a while back about where I could get a copy of the
standard, but hit a dead end. Does anyone here have a knowledge of the
standard so that I could ask a few questions? Of course if I could
actually get a copy that would be outstanding.

The questions are about non-alphabetic characters such as space, double
quote, and other punctuation marks and whether the standard specifies an
ordering for them.

Actually, I would be happy to study other products that have implemented
the standard, to use as a pseudo-reference if someone knows of one that
claims to implement it. (Probably many do, I just don't know who does.)
