 which the array was sorted, the split search fails.
 This may be related to bug 61458, which dealt with a very similar 
 problem. Can you think of any workaround that would work for 
 both .NET and Mono? At the moment, I'm doing a linear search in order 
 to keep the generated code portable, but that's rather inefficient.

+Oops, sorry your code specified DefaultInvariant which won't be
+culture dependent. But anyways I don't recommend to use it since there
+are some strings that are regarded as equivalent under that condition
+e.g. "\u00E0" and "ae". Furthermore, there are many characters that
+are "ignored". For example if you have Cherokee character in the
+string, the character will be just ignored and result in unexpected
+I recommend to implement your own IComparer whose Compare() uses
+String.CompareOrdinal() and pass it to Array.Sort(). If you need case
+insensitive results, it is still not so difficult to implement
+String.CompareOrdinal() which uses char.ToLower(invariant_culture) by
