Hola maleteros icon_smile.gif

Regarding collation, I'd like to make an observation and a question.

The observation is about the digraphs "ch" and "ll", which since 1994
no longer have a special status when sorting Spanish words. An
"official" document stating this is the Ortografía de la Lengua Española
(1999), pp. 1-2, available at http://www.rae.es/ (follow the link
"Ortografía").

In fact, the Real Academia Española agreed in 1994 --at the request of
various international organizations-- to return to its traditional
(i.e., pre-1803) Latin alphabetical order:

cg < ch < ci,
lk < ll < lm.

So, though I can see that these particular digraphs are useful to show
the power of collation as implemented in Malete, IMHO they should be
avoided in the examples, so that we don't unintentionally contribute to
the perpetuation of an obsolete sorting habit.

Now the question. The .m0d file allows A(lias) and M(aps). It seems that
M is the preferred option when dealing with expansions (ä => ae). But in
the case of single accented letters (e.g. á => a, Á => a), both A and M
can be used, as can be seen in the examples provided on CharSet.txt and
the test/*.m0d files. Is there any reason to choose one or the other method?

Saludos!

then I prolly have to ressort to de_phonebook as last really weird
collation found in the wild ... of course, the french do better,
but we are not yet ready for their reverse second level sorting.

Aliases are preferrable where sufficient.

They are a little bit cheaper, as they directly use one code point,
whereas mappings are inspected in turn (not recursively, exactly 1 level)
to produce zero, one or multiple codes.
