The application should use the CultureInfo.TextInfo property to obtain the object for a particular CultureInfo object. If a security decision depends on a string comparison or a case-change operation, the application should use the CultureInfo.TextInfo property of the object returned by the CultureInfo.InvariantCulture property to ensure that the behavior of the operation is consistent regardless of the operating system culture settings.
