I have a trouble with sorting strings... That problem does'nt exist if you are using english cause english don't have accents. But on other languages (spanish for example) it's a problem...
The problem is when grid sort words with char with accents. It is accent-sensitive, and is like capitals... not have to be sensitive, "a" and "á" is exactly the same value when sort... (no the same text).
OK, i have on work and I have fixed it (only a little) and have changed some the Active.Formats.String class:

Active.Formats.String = Active.System.Format.subclass();

Active.Formats.String.create = function(){


    String data format.


    var obj = this.prototype;


    Transforms the wire data into the primitive value.

    @param data (String) Wire data.
    @return Primitive value.


    var woSC=new Array('a','e','i','o','u');
    var wSC=new Array('á','é','í','ó','ú');

    obj.dataToValue = function(data)

        for (i=0; i<wSC.length; i++)
        return data;


    Transforms the wire data into the readable text.

    @param data (String) Wire data.
    @return Readable text.


    obj.dataToText = function(data){
        return data;


It work well with the grid examples and some of my codes... but on other does'nt work and i don't know why...

Code example (not work):
<LINK href="scripts/classic/activeui.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet">
<script src="scripts/grid.js"></script>
var myData = [
['Row 1','5/10/2004','','0','0','1']
,['Row 2','5/10/2004','4/1/2005','','0','4']
,['Row 3','5/10/2004','','','0','5']
,['Row 4','5/10/2004','','4/1/2005','0','6']
,['Row 5','5/11/2004','','','0','11']
,['Row 6','5/11/2004','4/1/2005','','0','13']
,['Row 7','5/11/2004','','','0','14']
,['Row 8','5/13/2004','','','0','18']
,['Row 9','5/13/2004','','','0','19']
,['Row 10','5/13/2004','','','0','20']
,['Row 11','5/13/2004','','','0','22']
,['Row 12','5/13/2004','','','0','23']
,['Row 13','5/13/2004','4/1/2005','','0','24']
,['Row 14','5/18/2004','','','0','25']
,['Row 15','5/18/2004','','4/1/2005','0','27']
,['Row 16','5/18/2004','','','0','32']
,['Row 17','5/18/2004','','','0','35']
,['Row 18','5/18/2004','','','0','36']
,['Row 19','5/19/2004','1/30/2006','4/1/2005','0','38']
,['Row 20','5/19/2004','7/1/2004','6/30/2004','2','41']
,['Row 21','5/20/2004','','','0','42']
,['Row 22','5/20/2004','','','90000000','44']
,['Row 23','5/24/2004','','','0','46']
,['Row 24','5/24/2004','','','0','47']
var myColumns=["Name","Created","End","Start","Hours","ID"];

var obj = new Active.Controls.Grid;

var string = new Active.Formats.String;
var date = new Active.Formats.Date;
var number = new Active.Formats.Number;



var formats=[string,date,date,date,number,number];

obj.setColumnText(function(i){return myColumns[i]});
obj.setDataText(function(i, j){return formats[j].dataToText(myData[i][j])});
obj.setDataValue(function(i, j){return formats[j].dataToValue(myData[i][j])});


I am begining to get crazy... ;-)
Tell me something...

You will get something like Row 1, Row 11, Row 12 ... ?

Just small comment about your replacement code - it will only replace single instance of a particular character. To replace all instances you have to use regular expressions instead of simple string replacement.
