    this is regarding r36.

    There is an issue with sort by names. While playing AB I noticed player Executioner was at the bottom of the list even though the name before him starting with "Y".

    I resorted by class/name then tried Name again and still Executioner was last. Executioner may have entered the match after it started (not sure). could late comers have something to do with it?

    UPDATE: I think i figured out why player Executioner was listed out of order. It seems the first letter E is not an E but an E with acute (ALT+0201). E with acute comes after the english alphabet so he got listed last.

    Is there a way to sort player names according to their english letter equivalents regardless of acutes or graves or circumflex or whatever. For example all the variations of E like ALT+0200, +0201, +0202, +0203 all are treated as just "E" for sorting purposes.

    Thanks for the flag carrier feature. Its really helpful in WSG when the FC is surrounded by bodyguards and the nameplates are clustered close together. Selecting with your addon makes things much easier.

    The sort names alphabetically speeds up target selection too after I get a name off the map. I'm sure the other side hates hunters even more now.

    Suggestion: option to sort all the player names alphabetically rather than by class.

    I've found that if I'm at the lumber mill in Arathi Basin I cannot see the approaching enemy because the hill hides him until he gets to the top but I can see his dot on my mini-map. Because the names are sorted by class it takes a while to match the name from the mini-map to a name on your addon. If the names were sorted alphabetically I could have the intruder targeted faster before he comes into view. the rest of my defenders can /assist me and we can ambush before he even dismounts. muhahahahaha!

    Same thing in WSG. Sometimes a player will camp on the ledge above the graveyard. I can see him on my mini-map and have a name but can't mouse target him because the the ledge obstructs him. I could type /target XYZ but then I'm usually dead.

    This is a fairly handy addon for battlegrounds. I'd like to suggest a few more features to make it better.

    1. Include the players level next to the name.

    2. Option to display letters instead of class icons. I'm not big on deciphering icons. Just me I guess.
    druid icon becomes "D"
    priest icon becomes "pR"
    paladin icon becomes "pA"
    warrior icon becomes "W"
    hunter icon becomes "H"
    rogue icon becomes "R"
    shaman icon becomes "S"

    3. Add an indicator to show who's currently carrying the flag. This one is a must have. And if you click on the indicator (or double click the name) that poor sap becomes my focus.

    4. Display the current health level for each player. This is a must have too. Although the addon shows targeting count I wanna attk the one with the lowest health. clicking through who's been targeted just takes too long.
