PubMed's Sort feature has a new option, Sort by Title (see Figure 1).

The order of sorting for the article title is: special characters, numbers (0-9), letters (A-Z). [Editor's Note: On November 18, 2008, the order of sorting was modified to ignore "A," "An," "The," and special characters at the beginning of the title.]
