Bug Description

I did not see a bug report on this, but I have students whose names are in Vietnamese characters. Normally the sorting of characters includes sorting by diacritics. An easy example is all the students whose name begin with a letter "D." There are two ways of writing it in Vietnamese, one as simply "D" and the other as "Đ". They are distinct letters, but currently schooltool sorts them both as D. So our list of students is currently sorted by SchoolTool as:


Dáo
Đông
Dua
Dũng
Đương
Mao

It should be:


Dáo
Dua
Dũng
Đông
Đương
Mao

In other words, "D" should always precede "Đ". Is this something that can be achieved in a future release of Schooltool?

Changed in schooltool:
importance: Undecided → High
assignee: nobody → Douglas Cerna (replaceafill)
