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

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
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!
