Hello, and greetings, I am new to this 'group'.

For character comparison across languages, probably they
safest/most well defined solution would be to say they are mapped
to Unicode and compared there.

However, note that if you specify this only happens when the languages
differ,
you can get different results in less than and greater than comparisons if
the
Unicode ordering of characters differs from the underlying language when
all you have is a dialect difference.  Since this issue is specific to
DAV:eq,
perhaps that is not a concern.

I've seen cases where the ordering of characters differs from the
language-specific ordering to Unicode, but am not familiar with those
languages enough to know if they had multiple dialects available.
