Description Andrew Dunbar 2005-06-30 06:01:44 UTC
Categories currently sort uppercase letters before lowercase.
This is probably not helpful for anybody.
It was already a problem on en.wiktionary before title
capitalisation was disabled. It's worse now that capitalisation
has been turned on.

Comment 2 Andrew Dunbar 2005-08-10 02:11:54 UTC
Since nobody has commented on the capitalisation issue at all here or under Bug
164 which this bug was incorrectly closed as a duplicate of, I am now re-opening
this bug as it is clearly a separate issue soluble without any of the issues
brought up on Bug 164.
Comment 3 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2006-08-10 06:01:50 UTC
This bug *is* effectively identical to bug 164 in terms of implementation.  Any
locale-specific sorting order will take account of case-sensitivity issues.  The
crux of 164 is to use something other than a binary sort on the names; the fact
that it asks for different sorting algorithms per locality isn't the difficult
part of its implementation.
