about:credits – Name Order and Non-ASCII Characters

The Mozilla project credits those who have “made a significant investment of time, with useful results, into Mozilla project-governed activities”, and who apply for inclusion, in the about:credits list, which appears in every browser product Mozilla has ever made.

Historically, the system of scripts which I used to manage the list were not as internationalized as they could be. In particular, it did not support sorting on a name component other than the last-written one. Also, although I don’t know of technical reasons why this is so, many non-English names are present without the appropriate accents on the letters.

But I’m pleased to say that any issues here are now fixed. So, if your name is not rendered or sorted as you would like on about:credits (either due to name component ordering or lack of accents) please email me and I will correct it for you.
