RR? Are are you sure? :-)
You forgot about "ch" though which is sorted as one letter and follows 
"c" :)
In French "é" is also the same letter as "e" (it's just pronounced 
differently), but they are also different when it comes to sorting them 
correctly. I don't know how Spanish handles this, though.
