First of all, this is an extended joke.
The point of the joke is that Czech sorts "ch" as a single letter after
"h", so using a COMBINING C BEFORE would make this happen automatically,
provided the combining character sorted after all letters.
Spanish also sorts "ch" as a single letter, but after "c", so here we
want a COMBINING H AFTER.
Of course, this is really not the way to do language-sensitive collation.
