You are right Meles and I know there are some there, I have a couple!

They show on my interests but just not searching on alphabet.

I know "why" it's happening,  but not (yet) how to cure it ::)

the letters are sometimes being translated to lower-case and the program is searching for upper-case. 
That's  why it's happening.

But why the upper-case letter is suddenly transformed to lower-case ......
I don't what the problem is  there ???

I'm working on it, and will no doubt find an answer soon ...
