Latvian collation chart misses rules for letters Ā Ē Ī Ū
|Reported by:||LazyDelphiBuilder@…||Owned by:||markus|
I checked collation charts versions 27 & 28 - they miss rules for latvian letters Āā Ēē Īī Ūū
In practice, it leads to incorrect (not matching to order of letters in Latvian Alphabet) sorting order.
Example test case (for Ā letter):
Sorted list of these 5 strings must be ordered according to nubmers next to letters. But in reality this order is not guaranteed, cause existing rules do not specify difference amongst Ā and A letters (same is for a and ā, Ē and E, ē and e, Ī and I, ī and i, Ū and U, ū and u).

p.s. the "funny thing" is that this rule impacts huge areas of computer software, e.g. Android and MacOs devices, databases etc. And I really wonder why the "bug" is still not fixed
