How do you alphabetically sort German names when a list contains last names starting with "Von ...", "De ...", "Van ..." etc.?
Also, how are words with umlauts (ä, ö, ü) and other diacritical characters handled?
For example, how would you sort the following list?
Anton Mustermann, Felix Dörfener, John von Neumann, Johannes Dorfer, Hans de Maizière, Ludwig van Beethoven
