Zope itself gives a method for sorting strings:
DocumentTemplate.sequence.sort. Many of the products relies on that for

Then it will probably be easiest to just patch it up to sort correctly. Or file a bug in the collector.

A candidate for a reject. I pointed out that the sort method can not smell your encoding. If you deal with encodings and deal with it in the right way but don't expect that the underlying framework can smell or guess what kind of encoding your application uses. Otherwise: use Python unicode strings *only* and *overall*.


Yes. I was thinking in the line of a monkeypatch of the sort method, that could be used in eg. Plone.

It should be very possible for it to look up the charset under properties, and decode strings from that before sorting.
