New Tag - add a new text value - SORTKEY

SORTKEY:x

x = Text or Numerical Value

Sorts in the order of 0-9, A-Z

When sorting lists of objects, PCGen would use, SORTKEY, OUTPUTNAME or Name in that order to determine what to sort on and then it would order by the values, being a text field you can do whatever fancy grouping you like without pcgen having to interpret it.
