RE: Sorting values that contain spaces

Yes. Firstly, it would collate "Z" before "A ACUTE". Secondly, it seems that Java's default collation (for the English locale, at any rate) is ignoring spaces, so that "ab" sorts before "a c". normalize-space() doesn't change "ab" or "a c", so it won't affect that.
