The collation charts lists Unicode characters in ascending collation order. The color of the cell indicates the strength of the difference between that character and the previous character in the chart, as follows:
| Quarternary difference
or no difference
If tool-tips are enabled in your browser, then if you pause the mouse over any cell, you will see the Unicode character name(s) followed by the sort key(s). Each sort key is represented as [xxxx.yyy.zz], where xxxx is the primary weight, yyy is the secondary weight, and zz is the tertiary weight.
Contraction: Two or more characters are sorted as one character.
Expansion: One character is sorted as two or more characters.
