I'm still cooking the meat on the barbie before I can chew it! ;)

<nifty code snipped ... see:
This is extremely promising. I drew from the ISO-8859-2 character set to make a rule, and it initially seems to sort correctly. The time through is roughly the same as my hack (but I've not really set-up a clean time condition). The only problem so far occurs when I run my word sample list through more than once. It seems to magically have kept the original sort/s and continues to append new results to the block. I cannot seem to find where the problem is occurring. Furthermore, I'm out of computer play-time today, so it will have to wait. :( Meanwhile, I'm waiting for Volker's serving to slow cook, so I can fully savor it soon!. Thanks for the input. Very exciting because it is so clean! --Scott Jones
