Hi, Volker, (BTW, sorry about jumping in on Ladislav's challenge to you the other day...) I am feeling like an idiot today (which is not necessarily *that* unusual), but I am not sure that I understand what you are suggesting. It appears as though you are setting up a kind of map, where Czech special character S< 0160 LATIN CAPITAL LETTER S WITH CARON maps to the spot following the "less special" character S 0053 LATIN CAPITAL LETTER S. If that is a correct characterization, then I believe I understand that part (and was already working on a type of mapping). But I don't understand how the sort-form is sorted. I feel as though I am missing the point (I am looking at the sheet of music and not hearing the song again). Do not feel as though you have to spend in a lot of time trying to give "clue" to the "clueless", but if you have a very brief way to explain further, or a brief partial example, I would appreciate it. I believe that I already have a solution worked out, but I'm still collecting a mapping with any free moments that I have. Thanks for your input. You frequently have great ideas, so I wouldn't want to overlook a better method!!! --Scott Jones
