Yes, yes. We are going in right direction. :)

This helps only if you want to order by single letter. Eg. you have column with first letter (or two letters in the case of "dž", "lj" and "nj".

Problem which remains is correct ordering of Croatian letters combined with 2 letters: "lj", "nj", "dž" and Croatian letters "š", "đ", "č" and "ć" if words are 4 chars and more. Letter "ž" works in any situation!
eg. "z", "Z", "ž", "Ž" is ok, and "žžžžžžžžžž", "ŽŽŽŽŽŽŽŽŽŽ" is ok.

However, when you do order by now, as I said, it orders correctly small caps and lower caps but only for words with less than 4 letters.
eg: "ććć", "ĆĆĆ" is ok. "ĆĆĆĆ", "ćććć" is not ok.
eg: "ččč", "ČČČ" is ok. "ČČČČ", "čččč" is not ok.
eg: "ššš", "ŠŠŠ" is ok. "ŠŠŠŠ", "šššš" is not ok.


It also orders "lj" and "nj" letters, but only if word has less than 5 chars (4 Croatian letters).

eg. "lj", "LJ" is ok.
eg. "ljab", "LJAB" is ok. but "LJABA", "ljaba" is not ok.
eg. "njab", "NJAB" is ok. but "NJABA", "Njaba" is not ok.


On other hand, ordering of words with letter "dž", doesn't work. "dž", "DŽ" is ok, but "DŽA", and "dža" is not.

Similar with "đ" alone.
eg. "đ", "Đ" is ok. but "ĐĐ", "đđ" is not.
on other hand "đaa", "ĐAA" is ok, but "ĐAAA", "đaaa" is not ok.

Any help is still greatly appreciated, and needed!

Best regards
Neven
