We just started using DSpace to build a repository of research reports and
have been very impressed so far.
But we have a problem: author names involving diacritical marks are sorted
very strangely. For example, the name Ozler, where the O has an umlaut,
entered as Ö sorts between Azam and Azzoni. It seems that the O-umlaut
sorts as an A. Similar is Soricut when the S has a cedilla (Ş).
Soricut sorts between Aoki and Appleton: again the diacritic sorts as an A.
These names were input using the bulk input method, using the standard
If such names are entered in forms using this encoding the resulting names
sort before any unaccented characters: looks like they are sorted as
starting with &.
The database was created with Unicode enabled.
We would be grateful for any help.
