Argh, Peter, I am no more Czech than Michael is English! I am Slovak.

Yes, we can type "ch" using the GLYPHS "c" and "h", but Unicode prides
itself in being a character encoding, not a glyph encoding. To us, "ch" is
a character. Period. In our dictionaries the "ch" follows the "h" and
precedes the "i". We would never dream of looking for "ch" after "cg" and
before "ci".

By the way, we have already had this discussion once, and I really do not
expect to convince anyone. Nor am I trying to convince anyone in Slovakia
to use Unicode anymore. It is useless.
