Description Arthit Suriyawongkul 2005-07-12 11:05:27 UTC
seems like the current sorting algorithm of WikiMedia for [[category:...]] is
based on ASCII-value.

therefore it failed to sort Thai words (as well as many other languages).

New language-aware sorting algorithm is require.


also, in order to handle many locale/language-specific sorting perfrences,
may be we have to have a mechanism that allow contributor to specify the sort
preference of each category.

may be we can add this to the category page,


for examples:


in the case of Wikipedia, this can be obmitted,
and use a default value which will be determined from the language of the Wikipedia.
