In the catalog, when I sort the category of Hose, Pneumatic 4mm D. by item name,
I find these parts
 
Part No: 5102c45  Name: Hose, Pneumatic 4mm D.  45L / 36.0cm
* 
5102c45 Hose, Pneumatic 4mm D. 45L / 36.0cm
Parts: Hose, Pneumatic 4mm D.
and
 
Part No: 5102c62  Name: Hose, Pneumatic 4mm D.  62L / 49.6cm
* 
5102c62 Hose, Pneumatic 4mm D. 62L / 49.6cm
Parts: Hose, Pneumatic 4mm D.
are out of order, or is it just me?

Also this part
 
Part No: 5102  Name: Hose, Pneumatic 4mm D.   (Undetermined Length)
* 
5102 Hose, Pneumatic 4mm D. (Undetermined Length)
Parts: Hose, Pneumatic 4mm D.
when sorted by item name, its position doesn't seem in alphabetic order (that
i recognize...)

My theory, display name and (hidden) sort name are not in sync....

Sorting of category, Hose, Pneumatic 4mm D. now works as expected. I assume
a backend fix has corrected the issue, thanks.

It could just be an extra space in the item name. The space itself would not
be visible to you, but it would have the effect of putting things out of order.

Yes, I suspect their is a little bit of behind the scenes trickery going on,
otherwise we would see 1L followed by 10L and not 2L

Oops, there is no 1L, but you know what I mean, 2L to be followed by 20L and
not 3L...
