If understand from your message your problem is that users want non case
sensitive order by? If that is the case you could simply have another field
uperrcased and use it for ordering without case sensitivity (in ibo you can
set a
field as case insensitive by giving it the uppercased equivalent). As about
i can't help you there, sorry.

I hope it helps you.
