Alphabetical sorting in tables

Unread postby Swede » Tue Mar 05, 2019 10:49 am

I'm using a table with sortable table configuration in one column (as described in the helpfile for Help+Manual Premium Pack 3.30 > V2 CHM Skins > Using Sortable Tables). When I use the sorting function in the published chm file, the Swedish umlaut letter "Ä" incorrectly comes before "A". The correct place for "Ä" is at the end of the Swedish alphabet, i.e. "...XYZÅÄÖ". Is there a way to fix this?
The rest of the alphabetical sorting works fine.

Not at the moment, it would be necessary to make the whole thing language-aware. I'll make a note of it for future versions, but it would be a major endeavor. Also, sortable tables are deprecated now and are already not supported in the V3 skins because tables are now generally something to be avoided because they break the layout of mobile devices. :?
