Our email filter stole the digest containing your reply (sometimes happens with emails containing script). I just got it released yesterday. I thought I *did* try "status" instead of "status_history" and it didn't work. BUT I went back and tried it again after getting your email. I'm both embarrassed and grateful to report that it worked perfectly! (Maybe it was a refresh problem before :) )

Anyway, THANK YOU (and everyone else who contributed). Once again, this list is awesome.

function View6()
var pass1 = 'status_history'

well, there you go then,
you said you wanted to look for an element called status (and you do) but
this is going to make it look for an element called status history
it will find such a thing (because of the original *, not the */* that's
looking for status grand children) and then it will sort on the string
value of that which is the concatenation of all the character data in
there, including white space used to indent the status elements
That might not be quite the order you intended...

try that with pass1= 'status'
