Explicitly document  how to get case-insensitive sorts and comparisons of string data
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: DERBY-4629
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4629
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Documentation
    Affects Versions: 10.6.0.0
            Reporter: Rick Hillegas


The most frequently asked question about Derby's support for language-sensitive strings is
this: "How do I get Derby to perform case-insensitive sorts and comparisons?" I think that
the answer to this question could be figured out by a reasonably intrepid reader who understood
a lot about Java's locale and collation support, perhaps supplemented with a fair amount of
googling.

If we made the answer to this question really pop out to the casual reader, then I think we
would do a great service to our users and to developers and tech writers who answer questions
on the community lists. Perhaps it would be sufficient to add a "Case-insensitive strings"
section parallel to "Character-based collation in Derby" in the Developer's Guide.
