The information here seems not to be correct anymore, as of a few months ago. It used to be the case that categories sorted upper case sort keys first, in on alphabet, and then lower case sort keys in a second--i.e. A, B, C, ... Y, Z, a, b, c, ... y, z. Much good use was made of that, for example, in categories of species of one particular genus. But it's no longer true. And it seems that the change is permanent. I don't know if it was an intentional change or not. If it was intentional, I don't know who to contact about changing the information; if it was an unintended result of some other change, I don't know who to contact about getting it fixed. 140.147.236.195 18:14, 21 September 2011 (UTC)Stephen Kosciesza
