Really ?  I didn't realise that ! 
So here am I typing on my Unicode keyboard sending Unicode characters to be 
stored in a Unicode text file for later transmission as a stream of Unicode ?  
I now need to learn Unicode, don't I. I'll have a google. 
So I guess the question now comes down to whether all the characters and all 
the accents used in all languages sort in the correct order in Unicode.
