      Description

      The most frequently asked question about Derby's support for language-sensitive strings is this: "How do I get Derby to perform case-insensitive sorts and comparisons?" I think that the answer to this question could be figured out by a reasonably intrepid reader who understood a lot about Java's locale and collation support, perhaps supplemented with a fair amount of googling.

      If we made the answer to this question really pop out to the casual reader, then I think we would do a great service to our users and to developers and tech writers who answer questions on the community lists. Perhaps it would be sufficient to add a "Case-insensitive strings" section parallel to "Character-based collation in Derby" in the Developer's Guide.
