Codepages (respectively character encodings) have no connection with  
how the characters are entered into the Computer. that is the job of  
the keyboard layout.

Codepages are how the Characters are encoded in binary. Again this has  
not much to do with how they will sort, or what is the big char of the  
little one. This association is made with a sort table. Often  
codepages and sort tables defined in the same rules (not always  
though, eg. mySQL allows you to define them separately).  
Unfortunately, rev's sort table is broken since 1.1.1 (tested on Mac  
OS X 10.5 ppc).

have fun
