Description Jon Hanna 2014-01-18 13:37:38 UTC
Try comparing two strings that are equal bar having different casing, under normal Unicode case-folding rules:

Console.WriteLine(StringComparer.InvariantCultureIgnoreCase.Equals("ΔΊΟΣ", "Δίος"));
Console.WriteLine(StringComparer.InvariantCultureIgnoreCase.Equals("Weißbier", "WEISSBIER"));

Expected output:


Actual output:

Oh, ToUpperInvariant() seems to have bugs in its mappings, which may be related. I thought maybe ß was being upper-cased as SZ instead of SS (as per some cultures, rather than standard Unicode rules mappings), but it just gets left as ß. Similarly, ς gets upper-cased as ς, though it would be Σ in every culture in the world AFAIK, and certainly in a culturally-neutral mapping.
