    Hi,

    I like to arrange my DVD's alphabetically, however i was stuck as to which of these goes before the other.

    K-Pax or K19

    I realise the best solution all round would be to dispose of K19 and repent for my sins.

    I have created a poll but remember don't phone in, it's just for fun.

    Cheers

    Isn't an issue- K-Pax should be in the bin.

    It's not letters vs. numbers - it's "-" vs. numbers.

    ;)

    If you are using an ASCII form of sort then "-" comes before numbers.

    Hi,

    I always but numbers before letters, so K19 (or K Nineteen) before K-Pax. However, it does depend on if you include/exclude the "-" symbol or not, as a character.

    To be brutally honest, however, I'd ditch "K19" completely, from your collection! :D

    i agree with numbers before letters, and spaces before numbers (if taht makes sense) but am not sure about whetehr characters (hyphens, eclamation marks and the like) come immediately before or after numbers

    but cheers for the thoughts
