Letters in the different languages?

Hey

How do I get a collection of the letters in a language, eg. the Danish
language has the Letters from A..Z, but also 3 special letters (Æ, Ø, Å).

I'm looking for a solution where I can get the letters of each language
(alphabet). It could either be a collection or an array of Chars or a sorted
unicode String. I have tried to look in System.Globalization, but to no avail.

Thanks in advance

Hi Klaus,

I don't think there is any information available on how many letters belong
to the alphabet in different cultures.
You may have to write code for specific languages or accept all characters
in the codepage for that culture, or perhaps characters in a codepage that
has both a lowercase and uppercase version.

Happy Coding!

You have a very simplistic view of the different languages of the world.
Some languages, Chinese for example, doesn't even have what you may call an
alphabet or can have a mixture of alphabet and other symbols.

For a start: http://www.unicode.org/charts/uca/index.html

(Some (many?) of these charts, like Canadian-Aboriginal, won't display any
symbol on your PC; it's because you don't have a proper font installed on
your machine.)

Thank you for your reply. I was not specific enough, the solution I'm
involved in is mainly directed against the European and North American
market. I'm well aware of the differences in the Thai and Chinese languages,
but right now I'm not interested in these languages.

What I'm looking for are the alphabets of the european languages.

Thanks in advance
