I don't think so. Because you really don't know wether "/" or "\" are
less than "" (empty char), " " (space) or "\t" (tab).

I.e. if these characters are placed before, between or after lower and
upper isalpha() chars depends on locale and code page. It's the same
for umlauts.

E.g. I once had interesting effects with lexical order between Access
and Oracle. Oracle ignored whitespace for comparision purposes in
german locale:

Oracle:

aaaa
aaa b
aaac

Access:

aaa b
aaaa
aaac
