Album list, etc. Sort order incorrect none English titles, etc.

If you have none English titles, etc. which contain accents, tildes, etc. the sort order fails.


Básico appears after "Bu.." instead of "Ba.."

Dvorak: Overtures appears before

Dvořák: Cello Concerto

I’m not sure why this is marked as a solution when you just posed the question. [Fixed --- Admin]

Sorting uses the standard sort of Unicode characters. This will impact your accented characters as well.

Sorting uses the accepted alphanumeric computer string sorting methods for ASCII/Unicode characters. Some exceptions are currently utilised - for example uppercase and lowercase letters are treated the same, which is not the case for a pure ASCII sort, as that would put A-Z (ASCII 65-90) before a-z (ASCII 97-122). Also it's possible to set PA to ignore articles in sort terms ("the", "a", "an") but currently only in English. 

I agree that a more natural human-oriented sorting option might make more sense for text-based tags though, allowing accented letters to be sorted beside their non-accented counterparts, and numbers to be sorted 'numerically' rather than as a consecutive set of characters (so the string "11" would come after "1", "2", "3", "4", etc - which in purely string-based sorting it does not).

Path/Filename sorting should probably be left as it is though, filename editing is a good way force ordering into the patterns you want without affecting the music tag contents.
