Lexical order of Hiragana/Katakana?

I want to ask about the lexical order of Hiragana/Katakana.

In the Unicode Hiragana [1] /Katakana [2] charts, every "small" letters
appear just before their "big" ones.  For example (UTF-8 warning),


"imhangul" and "nabi" Korean input methods provide Hiragana/Katakana
for convenience.  They follow these Unicode orders for the
Hiragana/Katakata list.

(In "nabi" (1) switch to Hangul mode and (2) type "g" and F9.
In "imhangul" (2) switch to Hangul mode and (2) type"E" and F9.)

But I thought big ones should appear first..  I know a little Japanese
and know that
the small letters are used less than the big ones.  What is the typical
lexical order 
of the big letters and the small letters?
