+ Comparison of strings is done using [http://site.icu-project.org/ ICU] which implements
the [http://www.unicode.org/unicode/reports/tr10/ Unicode Collation Algorithm]. This can give
surprising results if you were expecting ASCII collation. Note that:
+ 
+ * All symbols sort before numbers and letters (even the "high" symbols like tilde, 0x7e)
+ * Differing sequences of letters are compared without regard to case, so a < aa but also
A < aa
+ * Identical sequences of letters are compared with regard to case, with lowercase *before*
uppercase, so a < A
+ 
+ You can demonstrate the collation sequence like this:
+ 
+ {{{
+ require 'rubygems'
+ require 'restclient'
+ require 'json'
+ 
+ DB="http://127.0.0.1:5984/collator"
+ 
+ RestClient.delete DB rescue nil
+ RestClient.put "#{DB}",""
+ 
+ (32..126).each do |c|
+   RestClient.put "#{DB}/#{c.to_s(16)}", {"x"=>c.chr}.to_json
+ end
+ 
+ RestClient.put "#{DB}/_design/test", <<EOS
+ {
+   "views":{
+     "one":{
+       "map":"function (doc) { emit(doc.x,null); }"
+     }
+   }
+ }
+ EOS
+ 
+ puts RestClient.get("#{DB}/_design/test/_view/one")
+ }}}
+ 
+ Results:
+ {{{
