Showing author_sort column in main grid

Is there a way to show "author_sort" column in the main grid?

Charles,
As far as I've been buzzing you about author_sort and paths and so on and so forth in CALIBRE this may be FYI

"Official" ISSN rules for making the author sort with "difficult" names for several languages. It is iin Spanish but the examples are selfexplanantory.

Interesting.

I note that two of the examples for French are wrong, at least according to what I was taught. For example 'Jean de la Fontaine' should be 'Fontaine, Jean de la', because 'la' is not capitalized. 'Jean de La Fontaine' would be 'La Fontaine, Jean de'. In addition, a Palestinian friend says that 'Muhammad bin Zahra' should be 'Muhammad bin Zahra' (no commas or inversion), because 'bin Zahra' means 'son of', and isn't a last name at all.

They don't mention Asian names, which bring yet another level of complexity.
