Add the database collation in the config for more accurate sorting.
It should be higher prio on this.
When I use utf8_general_ci the database think A and Ä is the same when sorting. if I change it to utf8_swedish_ci then the sorting gets right.
What about when you use utf8_unicode_ci ?
It's the same as with utf8_general_ci.
Ä is the same as A when you compare characters with other collations than swedish. That's why there is country specific collations.
Yes i realise this, i was just curious to how they compared.
