      Greetings to everybody!

      This NoteTab thing is really like a big family, whenever you need
      something
      there is always somebody to help you out.

      The following request may appear too specific/personal, but we are sure
      it can
      be useful to many.

      You may know the wonderful "NoteSort" clip, which sorts complete
      paragraphs
      [not lines only, like the usual command 'Sort' in Modify Menu -> Lines
      -> ].

      You know the latest clip "Title" which keeps secondary words in small
      capitalization [like 'the', 'a', 'an', etc.].

      The need for a new clip, a merge of the above two [NoteSort + Title],
      arises
      for librarians, bibliographers and researchers who deals with books and
      classification of their titles.

      The problem is to 'sort' and 'title' AT ONCE a list such as this one:

      ---------------------------------------------
      The Mahabharata,
      by M.N. Dutt,
      Parimal Publications, Delhi, 1992,
      Rs 3500/-, HB, 7 vols., 4,000 pages

      The Bhagavata Purana,
      by Bhaktivedanta Swami,
      BBT Intl., Bombay, 1988,
      Rs. 4,444/-, HB, 18 vols., 12,000 pages

      The Padma Purana,
      by J.L. Sastri,
      Motilal Banarsidass, Delhi, 1994m,
      Rs. 3,000/-, HB, 10 vols., 3,200 pages
      -----------------------------------------------

      in the following way:

      -----------------------------------------------

      Bhagavata (The) Purana,
      by Bhaktivedanta Swami,
      BBT Intl., Bombay, 1988,
      Rs. 4,444/-, HB, 18 vols., 12,000 pages

      Mahabharata (The),
      by M.N. Dutt,
      Parimal Publications, Delhi, 1992,
      Rs 3500/-, HB, 7 vols., 4,000 pages

      Padma (The) Purana,
      by J.L. Sastri,
      Motilal Banarsidass, Delhi, 1994,
      Rs. 3,000/-, HB, 10 vols., 3,200 pages
      ---------------------------------------

      It is a common problem in many catalogs/book list to find hundreds of
      books
      listed under 'a', 'an', 'the', etc. where they actually become very
      difficult
      to find.
      The common reader/researcher remembers only [if at all] the actual
      titles of
      the books [like 'Bhagavata Purana', 'Mahabharata' and 'Padma Purana']
      and goes
      and search them under the letters 'b', 'm' or 'p' and not under the
      letter 't'
      [for 'the'].

      Of course the list of the 'small words' should be editable/customizable
      , for
      serving the needs of other languages than English.

      Thanks to the BIG NoteTabbers!
