The IKEA version of the Swedish alphabet

I just noticed something I haven't thought of before.

When you search for products on IKEA's website, they ignore the use of our "special" letters, å,ä and ö. "Å" and "ä" is treated like "a" and "ö" is treated like "o".

Of course.

Because how would you find things otherwise unless you know the Swedish alphabet...

So if you want to search for "Bärbar tray" in the "Products A-Z" section, you'll find it between "Bandora table lamp" and "Barren Bathroom series".
