Summary: /Names array not sorted correctly 
Resolution: None
Group: v1.40.6
Category: None

Initial Comment:
Axel Berger and Heiko Oberdiek report an error with the sorting of the
/Names array:

/Names [(cite.Kr07) 44 0 R (cite.Li08) 45 0 R (cite.M\37403) 23 0 R
(cite.Mi00) 47 0 R (cite.Mi84) 48 0 R (cite.Mo04) 50 0 R]

"cite.Mü03" (= "cite.M\37403") should come after "cite.Mo04".

A test file with output is attached.

this is a problem, but it's not clear to me how it should be fixed. Assume that we translate "\374" to the corresponding charcode (0374 = 252) before sorting, then how we decide the lexicographic order of that char? it can be intepreted as ü but also can be eg ytilde or something different, depending on the encoding we use. Comments?
