Similar answer to the one Chris gave for Word, though with a slightly older
version of the Windows sort tables....

This is not currently possible. But the user can certainly create a new
keyboard (now with an easy GUI tool) and the system will handle all that is
typed with it.

It is hard to know what you mean here -- are you asking for when every
single character in Unicode 4.0 will be in some keyboard and some
linguistically appropriate sort, all built into Windows? Or did you have a
more practical (and reasonable) target in mind?
