If the CHARSET_COLL collation and the supplied default MULTINATIONAL collation are not sufficient to support the desired language, the MULTINATIONAL collation can be modified to provide support for an extended site-defined character set.

Because modifying MULTINATIONAL collation is a complex task, avoid it if at all possible.
