Implement this method to provide a customized sort order comparison for type T.Notes to Implementers
Comparing null with any reference type is allowed and does not generate an exception. A null reference is considered to be less than any reference that is not null.
For information on culture-specific comparisons, see the System.Globalization namespace.
