Word uses sort orders provided by the system, so if it is not there, you
wouldn't be able to use it.
Same with additional language IDs - the system defines a set of
languages which Word is using.
Windows XP was shipped well before Unicode 4.0 came out, and Word2003
was shipped just after Unicode 4.0 came out, so not much that is unique
to 4.0 is supported. Support will increase in the next release, but
exactly which language sand in what ways are not easy to say right now.
The Windows tram would have a better idea. They just announced support
for all the major Indian languages, for instance.

Subject: [OT?] Modifying (Unicode) sorting of languages using diacritics
in MS Word and MS SQL Server
I would like to know if the collating order used by Word may be
tailored by the user to sort properly letters using diacritics in a
language not appearing in the list of languages by Word. A simple sort
by character number will obviously not work.
I have the same question for MS SQL Server 2000...
Finally, I would like to know if it is possible for a user to add
an additional language to the ones appearing in the Windows regional and
language options, so as to assign to it, for instance, some keyboard
P.-S. : Do Word, SQL Server 2000 and the Regional and Language options
window support all Unicode 4.0 associated languages as far as proper
sorting and addition of keyboards are concerned ? If not, when will
these products do so ?
