    That's not strange. ;-) The Mac has an OS call to compare two strings,
    with a flag "ignore case" and a separate flag "ignore diacriticals".

    Which character set this applies to is anybody's guess, since the Mac has
    two (one a superset of the other).

    When was Latin-1 created, anyway?
