Ah, OK. The order of characters in the Unicode Standard is *not*
meant to be the proper sort order for any language (even English)
or relied on for that purpose. If any changes are needed, it is to
the Unicode default collating sequence (which I have not checked) and not to
the codes for the characters themselves.
