Subject: sorting algorithm


I want to sort words as it is usual in "turkish" script, but in addition it
is necessary to sort
accented vowels like "e", "i" and "u", too. That will say these accented
vowels must be sorted in
any of their appearances after the vowels "e", "i" and "u".
E.g. "em ", "ew", "eme", "evar", ..... "me", "mes", "me", "mes" etc.
I was looking for a sorting algorithm concerning this manner of sorting, but
until yet, I couldn't
find one. (I'm using Microsoft's Word 97, Word 2000 and Access 2000)
This way of sorting is necessary for kurdish (kurmanci and sorani) texts.

Maybe you can give me an advice?

Thanks in advance with kind regards

Ernst Tremel
