message 1: by Bill (new)

Bill Johnston I have a book by Pope Benedict XVI in my list, and when I sort by name it comes out as "XVI, Pope Benedict." I doubt this is intentional, but I don't know how it should be parsed.

Perhaps the same way Jr is used, e.g. "Biggle Jr., Lloyd", so "Benedict XVI, Pope"? I know it's a less-than-perfect analogy.
