Non-filing / Non-sorting characters / Library of Congress http://www.loc.gov/ marc/nonsorting.html
Guidelines for the Non-Sorting Control Character Technique. It defines guidelines for using the technique, along with tables listing the MARC 21 subfields and fields in which the technique may currently be used. Many detailed examples are also included in the document.
http://lcweb.loc.gov/ catdir/cpso/nonfil.html 
LC implemented a change in practice that the Library of Congress implemented on February 20, 2003. Since the method of counting non-filing characters is a MARC 21 convention, presumably the aim of all PCC participants would be, sooner or later, to follow that convention.
