HIDDEN CHARACTERS (actual)
Title desc: Extra characters line up how you wanted them (I guess?), but the alphabet is reversed on a given level.
Title asc: Extra characters are reversed, but alphabet is right.
I believe title asc is the way to go, more extra characters = more importance, higher on the order. This is what I actually use to custom-order my music folders on my PC. More ++++++ means it's on top, single + is somewhere at the bottom. But in your email you wrore it the other way :) Just something to think about.
