Ignore Tag
Is it possible to use the ignore.sort tag to ignore special characters like " or [ at the beginning of a band name?

RE: Ignore Tag
The ignore.sort option doesn't handle this but you can do it using the approach described in this section.

I would be interested in examples of band names that start with " or [.

Band names? I don't know. But there's an album by Frank Zappa called " (= Apostrophe).

RE: Ignore Tag
The latter would also be sorted as !!!, so ignore.sort would not be relevant.

The former is indeed obscure but it's reasonably straightforward to add ignore.sort support for this and similar cases, so I will do this in the next update.
