Yes. The sort order is collation dependant. See the specs for how you
can set the default collation to be used by order by.

Subject: [xquery-talk] Ordering procedure of the 'order by' clause



Is there any specification that tells, in which order the elements
should be returned if you use a 'order by' clause, especially while
returning the text values. 

My doubt is, in what order or respect the CAPITAL  letters, spaces
between text values(like names) and alpha numericals are treated. 
Is the order by clause case sensitive, or can we implement it in which
ever way we like(case sensitive or case insensitive). 

Is there anything written in the W3C specs regarding this.

Thank you
