is this is the right order. refer http://suhrid.net/wiki/index.php?title=Collections

String natural sort order is lexicographical (Dictionary Sort)
Strings starting with:
Numbers sort first.
Then spaces
Followed by upper case
Followed by lower case.

[1234, 12, 9, abcd, ABCD, abc]
after sort:

Right, according to the ASCII characters 0 to 127 or more generally based on the Unicode order.
