Steps to reproduce:

1. Select "Test Specification" link on main page
2. Create four new test suites in your project with the names: "Suite", "anotherSuite", "BasicSuite", "fakeSuite" (the order of creation is not important)
3. Select the project name in the tree-list
4. Press "Sort alphabetically" button in the "Test Suite Operations"


The expected result is: "anotherSuite", "BasicSuite", "fakeSuite", "Suite"

The actual result is: "BasicSuite", "Suite", "anotherSuite", "fakeSuite"

Implementation is done using nasort(), that works in this way.
(see [^])

from [^]


ASCII-code order is also called ASCIIbetical order.[46] Collation of data is sometimes done in this order rather than "standard" alphabetical order (collating sequence). The main deviations in ASCII order are:

    All uppercase come before lowercase letters, for example, "Z" before "a"
    Digits and many punctuation marks come before letters; for example, "4" precedes "one"
    Numbers are sorted naïvely as strings; for example, "10" precedes "2"

An intermediate order—readily implemented—converts uppercase letters to lowercase before comparing ASCII values. Naïve number sorting can be averted by zero-filling all numbers (e.g. "02" will sort before "10" as expected), although this is an external fix and has nothing to do with the ordering itself.

Need to understand if a better implementation exists.
(may be is simply enough to ucase() or lcase() before doing nasort())
IMHO if people choose a naming convention (Capital for first letter, or lower case for first letter) he/she has to mantain it always.
