Hmmm....
How does this affect my question here ?

Specifically -- will a composite column such as {date} now sort on the date-time underlying "Date" instead of the visible mm/dd/yy?

Will pubdate sort on the visible "yyyy" or the underlying, possibly misleading date-time?

Would it make sense to have a tweak regarding sort behavior -- sort on display vs sort on underlying date-time?

(It's when you're doing nested sorts that it matters).


Edit:
I guess my preferred behavior would be to have dates sort on what is displayed, but as though they were dates, not just text.
