collation of which could be set to achieve better sorting. This closely
relates to the new sort key column -- I will check if we can have some
parameter for setting this column's collation internally.
SMW 1.1 uses SMW tables as well as MediaWiki tables for sorting operations. In
general, I guess that you may need to rebuild table contents to make later
collation changes take effect.
P.S.: I recall that the "UTF8" option during MediaWiki installation is
still "experimental" and has nothing to do with the above problem which
refers to SMW tables only. Using Unicode characters in MediaWiki and SMW is
possible in any case without special settings.
