New in Vista Beta 1: giving more strings weight

Back in January I put up that post entitled The jury will give this string no weight.

In that post I mentioned three reasons why a code point might have no weight:

In Vista, that last two point are addressed in Beta 1 to include every Unicode code point that exists in Unicode 4.1 -- so all of these languages can be given at least some order in a list.

Now as to which ones have proper and linguistically appropriate results for specific locales, that can be the subject of future posts. :-)

Have you hired clairvoyants to take care of that second point? ;)

Heh, no that will still be a problem....
