    A couple of problems there. The call back function should return -1, 0 or 1 and not true or false. And you'll increase performance by converting the date strings to time stamps, sorting and then...

    HTML is built out of something called SGML. SGML is nothing but a grammar with no vocabulary. When you add a vocabulary you get what is called generically "an SGML application". HTML is one of those...

    No, no no! That would send us back to the bad old days of the FONT tag. Defined vocabularies are essential to communication.

    It is extremely important to mark up the page properly with the...

    Well, sort of.

    Strictly speaking, in HTML you are allowed to create your own elements and browsers are supposed to just ignore any unrecognized tags. But in XHTML anything that isn't permitted by...

    The world, and especially HTML, has enough rules as it is. Don't go making up your own. Classes, and even IDs, are not required to convey meaning but they certainly may. Please see...

    If you are feeling the need to expand your semantic possibilities there is a way to do that already written into the language:

    color:red;
    }

    I move around a lot of data, in and out of Excel so:

    1) You'll want to use some sort of Windows machine with Excel installed.

    JavaScript is likely to be V bad here. Too many of us turn the dang nuisance off or are using browsers that don't support it. Better to use some sort of server side scripting. What do you have...
