   public static void Main()  {

      // Defines the strings to compare.
      String myStr1 = "calle";
      String myStr2 = "calor";

      // Uses GetCompareInfo to create the CompareInfo that uses the "es-ES" culture with international sort.
      CompareInfo myCompIntl = CompareInfo.GetCompareInfo( "es-ES" );

      // Uses GetCompareInfo to create the CompareInfo that uses the "es-ES" culture with traditional sort.
      CompareInfo myCompTrad = CompareInfo.GetCompareInfo( 0x040A );

      // Uses the CompareInfo property of the InvariantCulture.
      CompareInfo myCompInva = CultureInfo.InvariantCulture.CompareInfo;

      // Compares two strings using myCompIntl.
      Console.WriteLine( "Comparing \"{0}\" and \"{1}\"", myStr1, myStr2 );
      Console.WriteLine( "   With myCompIntl.Compare: {0}", myCompIntl.Compare( myStr1, myStr2 ) );
      Console.WriteLine( "   With myCompTrad.Compare: {0}", myCompTrad.Compare( myStr1, myStr2 ) );
      Console.WriteLine( "   With myCompInva.Compare: {0}", myCompInva.Compare( myStr1, myStr2 ) );

   }
