Sorting within catalogue

I have series "Sharpe" and "Sharpe Extra", but "Sharpe Extra" is sorted before "Sharpe" in the catalogue. Likewise "Frederik Pohl (ed.)" appears before "Frederik Pohl". Why is this?

Are you sorting 'Decending'
the string difference is longer by a Space (chr 20)

Nope, everything else is in proper (ascending) alphabetical order.

You might run the Quality Check PI and checks the various 'Sorts' (those that will show red)

The other possibility is the value contains an alternate type space (nbsp...)

OK, I tried a new 'TBR' Catalog.
While I did not see your issue, I did see another 'quirk'

in Library Metadata:
Author1&Author2
Author2&Author1 (author 2 is now the Prime Author in a series)
Author1

The Authors sort in the catalog Flips the order when needed. but... you get
Author1
Author1&Author2
Author1&Author2 <<

Another thought: perhaps it's including the "</p>" when sorting? Then "<p>Sharpe Extra</p>" would be sorted before "<p>Sharpe</p>"...

I haven't got time to check it right now, but I'll have a look at this later! I can't think of any other plausible explanation...

I'll try the quality check later... meanwhile I just opened the catalogue (which is AZW3) in the editor, and it's definitely a normal 0x20 space.

Since GRiker, who owns the catalog code is away, you are unlikely to get anywhere, unless you are willing to fix the code yourselves.

I've finally got around to checking; I changed "Sharpe Extra" to "Sharpe:Extra" and "Sharpe?Extra" (before and after "<") and this is what I get on the Authors page:
Quote:
<p class="series">
<a class="calibre3" href="part0002.html#sharpeextra_series">
Sharpe:Extra
</a>
</p>
<p class="line_item">
<span class="prefix">
*
</span>
<span class="entry">
<a class="calibre3">
[1] Sharpe's Skirmish
</a>
</span>
</p>
<p class="series">
<a class="calibre3" href="part0002.html#sharpeextra_series">
Sharpe?Extra
</a>
</p>
<p class="line_item">
<span class="prefix">
*
</span>
<span class="entry">
<a class="calibre3">
[2] Sharpe's Christmas
</a>
</span>
</p>
<p class="series">
<a class="calibre3" href="part0002.html#sharpe_series">
Sharpe
</a>
</p>
<p class="line_item">
<span class="prefix">
*
</span>
<span class="entry">
<a class="calibre3">
[21] Sharpe's Devil
</a>
</span>
</p>
My latest theory is that "part0002.html#sharpeextra_series" is the key which is used for the sort, and "part0002.html#sharpe_series" therefore follows the other two...
