RE: collations: Czech vs. Croat vs. Slovak

From what I remember about these collations, Czech and Slovak are very
similar, if not identical; Croat(ian) is very different than the other two
(it also has compressions/ligatures that sort as unique letters).

Subject: collations: Czech vs. Croat vs. Slovak

I am updating my information on Slovak collation. I notice that
Croatian collation is different from what I had formerly been
using as Czech collation. I am not sure if Slovak collation
should be considered the same as Czech, Croat, or something
entirely different.

Does anyone have any insight into differences or commonalities
for collation for these locales?


According to Murphy, nothing goes according to Hoyle.
