Spanish "ch" is not yet sorted as one. After the "Real Academia de la Lengua
Espaņola" recommended so, it is generally accepted, and every new
dictionary follows that rule (sorting as two separated letters).
Same applies to spanish phoneme "ll".

At this moment i don't know what says Unicode Standard about that.
(I hope it doesn't follows the old criterium)
