Will that is very true, I tend to think that users only tend to use the
characters on there keyboards. The ability to sort è (had to copy past this)
is important in certain applications. I just don't think
the English language uses it enough to require such a complicated default
compare. Then again, this really doesn't matter because it has to be the
same on both .Net and Mono. So, yah.
