[R] a question of alphabetical order

Sys.setlocale(category = "LC_ALL", locale = "es_ES.ISO8859-15")
The order is now correct, but it renders incorrectly most of the
non-ASCII characters, both in console:
1 √\201guilas de mantenimiento 1.97 NA 1.72
2 √\201ngeles de la CONAGUA 1.77 1.97 1.94
And in quartz():
Well, the solution seems to be to set order with a locale, and to create
the output with the other, is this possible?
