Having a problem with the way DSpace is sorting author names involving diacritical marks.
Someone else posted a question about diacritical marks to the list in April '04, and received
an answer about the database being "unicode enabled." Two questions: Is that the reason the author sorting isn't
working for us at the University of Delaware? Can the metadata fields be edited to fix the author
sorting problem? Thanks.

For example, the name O'Malley returns a sort in DSpace (using Netscape Navigator browser)
that looks like this:
Items for Author Oâ??Malley, Fran in All of DSpace
Return to Browse by Author
Sort by Title
Sorting by Date
Showing 0 items.
