Ah, since I am very "Windows" based I always bow to the built-in sorts in
the NLS database, and never recognize other ones until I have a customer
clamoring for support of that sort in an application for which I am
consulting on i18N issues. My own little form of provincialism favored by
many consultants such as myself: I am provincial toward my clients' needs!

And then of course I would start fighting to get this alternate Italian sort
into the NLS database, too!
