Some comments

Thanks for your comments on the subject of sort order of user names. It's not clear to me how the {{{1|{{PAGENAME}}}}} syntax works, but I do see what results. Thanks for showing us how to use it.

It seems to me that most would agree that user categories, such as the language ones to which this talk page is associated, should be sorted by user name. There are some categories (such as the subcategories of specialties) that are a mixture of content and users. I think in these, there is some benefit to having all of the users grouped together under "U". Will think about this some more.

I will create a link to this discussion from the categories task relating to developing procedures for implementing categories. As you suggest, we will need to have some agreement within the community on how to handle this situation.

Also, I appreciate your work on the issues of bidirectionality.

Warm regards, Alison

Thanks for the answer!
a1) beside {{template_name|Last_name}} one should use
a2) {{template_name|Last_name First name}} which would make much more sense.

I created some test pages at user:First name Last name, user:First name Last name/sandbox and template:User eo.
template:User ar, template:User eo and template:User he are using now two additional parameters:
<div style="float: {{{float|left}}}; border:solid lightgrey 1px; margin: 1px;" dir="{{{dir|ltr}}}">.
Both « float » and « dir » have the old default values. The English text is ending with an « .&lrm; » and will be displayed properly regardless of directionality.
template:User eo is using « {{BASEPAGENAME}} » not « {{PAGENAME}} » but this realy does not make much sense because subpages would not be sorted proprly.
There are some tests at the page user:First name Last name/sandbox#tests_about_templates which every body can use as a sandbox. user:First name Last name should be a sandbox name as well.
