Oops;  I  meant   .ist    rather than  .sty .

It may be that   icase.ist   does not provide enough info by itself,
but needs to be input along with other  .ist  files.

In any case, my point was that studying the use of  ,ist  files may lead
to a solution on how to define appropriate sorting orders.
It's not a problem that I've explored in any real depth.
