  Sample input:
AddHiddenSortOrder ( "q¶w¶e¶r¶t¶y" ; "" )
  Sample output:
"#q¶##w¶###e¶####r¶#####t¶######y" where # stands for Char(65279 )

  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

This is perfectly adequate for most pop-ups, but you could change the Prefix value calc, to deal with longer lists...
