I would suggest you order by something that includes a fulltext index on
the specific column.
Maybe check out the documentation on the MATCH()AGAINST() systax as well
as fulltext searches in general.

For example:
SELECT Col1, Col2, Score AS MATCH(TextCol) AGAINST ("") WHERE ... ORDER
BY Score;

Hope to help,

Subject: Order By and Ignore Punctuation

I would like to perform a query of a personnel database with an ORDER BY
clause that ignores punctuation. For example, O'shea would sort after
Osbourne, not to the beginning of the Os.

Is this doable in the query?
