I'll try that out this evening, when I'm at home.

Karma is underway as this does make it a lot easier

then else_value is returned. You can have as many pattern, value pairs as you want.
I think that the following will do what you want.
Code:
{title:switch(^[a-dA-D],[A-D],^[e-jE-J],[E-J],^[k-qK-Q],[K_Q],^[r-zR-Z],[R-Z],[Other])}
Note that in the next release (0.7.23) you will be able to use title_sort as a field name. In .22, it always returns the empty string. Sigh.
Almost, because I want it based on {author_sort}

Code:
{author_sort:switch(^[A-D],[A - D],^[E-J],[E - J],^[K-O],[K - O],^[P-T],[P - T],^[U-Z],[U - Z],[Other])}
is a lot cleaner!
