FWIW, This is indeed the collation supported by LCID 0x0C0A (3082) under
Windows, names "Spanish - Modern" under most versions of Windows and
"Spanish - International" under Windows 2000.
The other collation is "Spanish - Traditional" and its LCID is 0x040A
All functions under Windows that accept LCIDs such as LCMapString and
CompareString will take these values for use in sorting/collation of data.
Visual Basic functions such as StrComp will also accept these values.
