|Accent-sensitive (_AS)||Distinguishes between accented and unaccented characters. For example, "a" is not equal to "ấ". If this option isn't selected, the collation is accent-insensitive. That is, SQL Server considers the accented and unaccented versions of letters to be identical for sorting purposes. You can explicitly select accent insensitivity by specifying _AI.|
