MS 4.1.0

How does one handle accented letters, or deal with a letter not normally found in English (ñ, for example)? It's partly for this reason that I tend towards using the title as it is, instead of ignoring bits of it.

You're absolutely right that sorting correctly is difficult, precisely because not everyone agrees on the definition of correctness

The Calibre method which I suggested for 5.0 would also allow you to sort accented characters as if they were unaccented, if that's what you want to do (by leaving them in the title exactly as you want them to appear, but replacing them in the "title sort" field by their unaccented equivalents).

Alternatively, both the current state of 4.1 and both of the proposed methods for 5.0 still allow titles to be sorted exactly as written if that's your preference.

The point is that this a very definitely an area in which one size will never fit all, so it's useful to give people the tools to sort exactly the way they want to, exceptions and all.
