The comparison of two character strings under MULTINATIONAL collation obeys the following rules:

  • All characters in an equivalent class have the same collation value. A character from class i is less than any character from class i+1.
  • If two strings are equal, based upon the class, additional processing takes place to order the characters within a class.
