Case-Insensitive Sorting of Multi-Dimensional Lists

I have a list of lists that I would like to sort utilizing a certain index
of the nested list.  I am able to successfully use:

 

Import operator

list = [["Apple", 1], ["airplane", 2]]

list.sort(key=operator.itemgetter(0))

 

But, unfortunately, this will be case sensitive (Apple will come before
airplane because the A is capital) and I need it to be insensitive.  

 

Can someone provide some input, please?

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Jough
