Thank you very much!!!
This is exactly what I needed.

I do haven an additional question. How is the Sin/Shin handled?

I assume the the Sin comes before the Shin, but how does that play with 
the vowels? Is the word alphabetized by the vowel first, then the 
Sin/Shin - or is it alphabetized first by the Sin/Shin, then the vowel?

For example:

Vowel-wise $"M comes first, Sin/Shin-wise &FM comes first. So which has 
the priority?
