are asking but figured someone else might see what you mean. With
the passage of a week without an answer, I infer that most readers
were in the same boat, so let's try for clarification. WP's Sort is
pretty powerful, but at its simplest (default) will simply order a
list (where list items are delimited by end-of-line/new-line codes)
alphabetically. Is that what you mean? If so,
(1) Are your "a b c d" tab-delimited fields?
(2) Are a and b something like firstname and lastname, and you want
to reverse the order?
There are different ways to accomplish such ends, but before we go
into the means we need to be clear about the ends.
