Hi

Please try using GenericList instead of AZList. AZList sorts on a-z0-9
and other characters are ignored.

Regarding searching, are you entering the search terms using the correct
encoding? To test this, try viewing a document, copy and paste some text
from the browser, then paste this into the search box. does it work in
this case?
If this works, you could try changing the encoding on the preferences
page to see if you can get typed in search terms working.

Regards,
Katherine
