Sorting of accented characters

First of all, thank you for a such a fine program - I think it's going to be very useful for me.

Just one small issue, which I've not seen mentioned in the forums: the sorting appears treat accented characters as different letters, when in the standard 'dictionary' format the accents are ignored for the purposes of sorting (and searching).

E.g. 'é', 'è', 'ê' and 'ē' should all be sorted and searched as 'e'. At the moment, all the 'e's are together, then all the 'é's, etc, which could be confusing in a large set (for example, by separating related words unnecessarily).

Am I missing something? Or if not, please could this be looked at for a future release?

    We'll look into this. I'm not sure how easy it is to change, but we'll certainly see.
    Kind regards,
