I have problems at a much more primitive level.  Different sofware 
packages at our university may sort names as case sensitive or not case 
sensitive.  A last name like van Gelder may come before Albright or after 
Zodek for the case sensitive ones.  I also get different orderings for 
O'Brien and Oliver, but those are at least near each other.
