[Koha] Nonfiling characters and sorting

I'm guessing this is due to the Zebra sorting definition file, etc/zebradb/lang_defs/en/sort-string-utf.chr in the Koha source. The English language one maps "The ", "A " and "An " into a non-sorting tokens, but does nothing to anything else. Mapping "Die " away is a bit problematic...

Subject: [Koha] Nonfiling characters and sorting

I'm not sure if it's just our catalogue, so would ask for confirmation (or
denial) by others before exploring further.

In both OPAC and staff interface, the "sort" drop-down defaults to
'relevance', but for longer pages users and staff sort by 'title A-Z'.
Normally a biblio with a 245 second indicator set to, say, 4 drops 'the '
(3 chars and space), but we are finding that it does *not* drop German
articles such as 'der ' and 'die '

which has both English and German usage.

Has anyone else noticed this?

Thanks -- Paul
