    A similar issue: a Polish encyclopaedia I have from 1985 sorts words
    with Ó differently depending on whether this is Polish Ó (sorted between
    O and P, like other Polish letters are after letters without accents)
    or foreign Ó (folded with O, like other foreign accents are folded).
    It's typeset in the same way.

       MOQUETTE
       MÓR [mo:r], city in Hungary
       MORA
       MÓRA [mo:ro] Ferenc, Hungarian writer
       MORACZEWSKA
       [...]
       MOÅ»NOWŁADZTWO
       MÓR (a Polish word)
       [...]
       MÓŻDÅ»EK (a Polish word)
       MPHAHLELE
