OK, finally figured out the problem I submitted to PBS a couple weeks ago, but still haven't gotten an answer about. My review pages are alphabetizing book titles starting with "The" under the Ts although other lists here at PBS ignore The when it is the first word and alphabetize using the next word.

I finally got an email from PBS saying they had confirmed the alphabetization error and are looking at how to correct it.

Interesting!  Be sure to post when you get an answer, Jeanne.

Yeah, I noticed that. I just shifted gears when looking for a book under my review list. I never thought about asking PBS why.

But why is the alphabet in that order anyway? Is it because of the song?

Blame it on the Greeks, I guess.
