I think this is a bug, at least unexpected. I have these words (and others) in a document:

23rd Regiment

19th Mercantile

The index lists 23rd Regiment under the alphabetical letter "R" taken from the "rd" ordinal ending. I would expect it to be listed alphabetically under the characters "23".

The index lists 19th Mercantile under the alphabetical letter "T" taken from the "th" ordinal ending. I would expect it to be listed alphabetically under the characters "19".

The indexed words are, however, sorted before the alphabetical letter "A" - so it's sorting by the two numbers "19" and "23" but listing them under the ordinal's first letter instead of the numbers.

copied from index:

T

        19th Mercantile  225

R

        23rd Regiment  225

A

        Air  225

B

        Bird  225

I would say a bug. They are ordered by the numbers but if there is a word in the selection that is the letter listed.

The issue is also found in standard text frames, not just in the indexing data. The other part of this is that in text/index frames, you can end up with split numbers across two lines (both types of frames), a leading, dangling comma or space starting a wrapped line (in indexes).  See this issue for details/examples please: Text and Index Frames split numbers.
