Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Glossary sorting in Japanese

Further to the glossary sorting issue in Japanese, we are using the id for
glossentry and notice that they DO GET SORTED, but in an arbitrary manner.
Is this a fluke, or is there some sort order that is influencing it? What
might that be, so that I can edit it?
