Hi,this is a bit of an unusual request , I know, but I'm wondering if it is possible to define a 
custom order for characters when comparing strings. I'm studying some ancient languages where the 
transcription "alphabets" use a mixture of standard English characters (but not necessarily in the 
same order they are found in the English alphabet) interspersed with Unicode characters to give 
things like accents or like dots (or other additions) underneath the letters. I'd like to create a 
dictionary list, probably in calc in the first instance with words and synonyms, and be able to 
sort either on the English column or on the 'other language' column. Is this sort of thing going to 
be possible? Or would I have to write some (possibly fairly complex) Basic (or whatever) code to do
