I've got a wordpress setup where I spit out a list of company names in french. Many company names start with accented letters, such as É (capital E-accute). They come after Z. I've tried changing my collation to "utf8_unicode_ci" not only in wordpress's config but in the actual databases (by munging the SQL file).
No matter what I try, I can't see to get the basic order of E,e,É,é,È,è, etc.
Can anyone offer some tips? What do I need to do to sort correctly?
The blog I need help with is thisisafakeblogforcedonme.wordpress.com.
