To make the Source text meaningful when sorting, consider parsing the six source types...

Drops from
Purchasable with
Purchasable for
Created via
Reward from
Found in

So this raw text....

Drops from Patchwerk in Naxxramas
Drops from Sapphiron in Naxxramas
Drops from Kel'Thuzad in Naxxramas
Drops from Sapphiron in Naxxramas

..would end up as two columns...

source1,source2
Patchwerk,Naxxramas 
Sapphiron,Naxxramas 
Kel'Thuzad,Naxxramas 
Sapphiron,Naxxramas 

Purchasable with 25 [Emblem of Heroism]
source1,source2
25,Emblem of Heroism 

Purchasable for 40g53s90c and requires Kirin Tor - Exalted
source1,source2
40g53s90c,Kirin Tor - Exalted

Created via Glacial Waistband
source1,source2
Glacial Waistband,<null>

Reward from [80] Judgment at the Eye of Eternity in Dragonblight
source1,source2
[80] Judgment at the Eye of Eternity,Dragonblight

Found in Four Horsemen Chest in Naxxramas
source1,source2
Four Horsemen Chest,Naxxramas

Of course you could add a third column if you want to retain the type...
source1,source2,source3
Four Horsemen Chest,Naxxramas,Found in

TY!

It's a bit more complex than you describe, but suffice it to say that we're not happy with how source info is handled at the moment and hope to improve upon it in the future.
