yes, its correct. this confusing poor »snippet« above should suggest to do the mapping with parse. this mysterious [| »ch« ] should suggest to map »ch« to a single »char« too.

sorry for the confusion. its not really needed my way, i think. i would map the strings before sorting, adding them to the data and doing the sort on these strings instead of the originals. this should be faster than sort/custom & mapping new every compare. but performance is not the matter i think. so sort/custom may be simpler. and somehow i feel you have thought at this already.. ;-)

i think i have an idea for a »mapping tool« - have to play with it. hmm...
