    Unicode has a companion standard, the Unicode Collation Algorithm
    (UCA, It provides a default
    sort order for all of Unicode but allows for tailorings as well, with
    which you can change the sorting of any character, or sequence of
    characters. You could for example make ZWJ and ZWNJ ignorable, if they
    are not already, which makes sequences sort the same whether they
    contain these characters or not.
