When starting a cell in a table with an exclamation mark, in order to prevent a WikiWord getting hyperlinked, this breaks the sorting of the column: even though the exclamation mark is not visible, it results in the row getting sorted at the end.

Example page: TableSortTest

I've updated the test topic with an alternative, which may be a work around for you

Thanks, I'll use that for the moment!

In general, it seems that the sort algorithm needs some tweaking, as it does not use the display text for sorting - e.g.: Sandbox.AnotherTopic gets displayed as "AnotherTopic", but sorts with the Ss. Example page updated.
