Sorting results, ignoring rank

Just a short note to say thanks to everyone who responded with
suggestions on how we could sort the results of a Swish search
alphabetically and ignore the ranking results! Yes I know that is not a
commonly used approach but the users are academics who think it is more
efficient for them to visually inspect the results. I am an academic as
well but I trust my searching algorithms and search engines over brute
force inspection of all results. Thanks again!
