Dean,

Yes, the sort order tags are there and seem to be working fine for the artist name display -- i.e. "Joan Baez" with "Baez, Joan" for the sort order tag displays between "Badfinger" and "Bananarama." The alpha shortcuts for this sequence of artists, however, would read "B J B" (for Badfinger, Joan Baez, Bananarama) as if the code is reading the artist name tag rather than the sort order tag.

Do you need some actual mp3 files to test?

Thanks,
Brett
