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 it?Thanks,/Gary

I suggest you visit the web site of SIL. Its an organization devoted to the languages of the world. Have some tools that support how to represent scripts.

I also suggest you, to take a look to LaTeX. It is completely capable for languages, academic work, building diccionaries and using tailored fonts.
