Sound to me like you are being confused by multi-level sorting where
the '.' is ignored on the first level.  If the dot is ignored on the
first level, the 'c' and 'h' are used instead when comparing against
the 'd', and this will give you the described behaviour.  Most
languages sort with multiple levels like this.  For example norwegian
(nb_NO / no_NO / nn_NO) would sort like this:


This is because upper/lower case and punctuation is ignored on the
first level of sorting and double 'a is the same as 'å'.  I would not
be surprised if Spanish have similar features in its sorting rules.
