    resolved [RESOLVED] change order of <li> item with javascript

    Is it possible to change order of <li> item with JavaScript by using a string variable?
    The string variable is coming from <%=(Recordset2.Fields.Item("neworder").Value)%>.
    The string variable value may be 1,2,3 or 2,3,1 or 3,2,1.
    I would like the numbers in the string variable represent the <li> order or positions.
    <ul>
    <li><%=(Recordset2.Fields.Item("image_code_A").Value)%></li>
    <li><%=(Recordset2.Fields.Item("image_code_B").Value)%></li>
    <li><%=(Recordset2.Fields.Item("image_code_C").Value)%></li>
    </ul>
    for example: if string variable = 2,3,1 then the list would display:
    <li><%=(Recordset2.Fields.Item("image_code_B").Value)%></li>
    <li><%=(Recordset2.Fields.Item("image_code_C").Value)%></li>
    <li><%=(Recordset2.Fields.Item("image_code_A").Value)%></li>

    Thanks in advance
