The library sorting note

/Hints/library sorting

New to v9.6.0, the container sort transform 'library sorting' permits notes to be sorted as they might be filed in a library. By default, library sorting ignore initial words "a", "an", and "the".

The 'library sorting' option for $SortTransform and $SortAlsoTransform is usually set via the pop-up menu of the Sort Inspector.

The sorting note at /Hints/library sorting, if present and not empty, has $Text containing a list of words that will be ignored for library sorting. This note can be customised for different languages and filing practices.

Library sorting also respects some locale-specific rules for handling diphthongs and diacritics, and is always case insensitive.
