This template can be used to generate a generic sort key. See Help:Tables#Sortable_tables. It is useful in many different situations. For example:

When used in the first row of a sortable column, it forces the column to sort alphabetically.
When a cell contains a wiki link, it can be used to force the cell to be sorted by some hidden text and not the bracket.

Usage[edit source]

{{sms|some text}}

Output[edit source]

{{sms|some text}} generates <span style="display:none">&some text</span>
