Reverse Table Row Order?

 3:55 pm on Jan 6, 2009 (gmt 0)

Is there a program (for OS X), a GUI HTML editor that can reverse the row order of a table? I have a very long static (not from database) table that I put in chronological order. Upon great reflection, I see that reverse chronological order is more... logical. I'm trying to avoid manually doing the reversing by copying row after row and pasting it on the other side of the document. GoLive can do basic sorting but now a row reversal. Dreamwaver can't either from what I can see. Anyone know of anything else?

I don't have an answer to your question but I do have another suggestion;

Google JavaScript Table Sorting [google.ca]

Let your users decide how to order the table. Just a thought.

Maybe open web page in MS Word. Then you can highlight just the table and use Word's "sort" function, under the Table menu.

If you can give me the table I can sort it for you really quick with a script I have. If not, however, I understand.

You can paste a table straight into a spreadsheet and sort there then save as html. Clean up the code a bit (OK, a lot if you are using Excel)and paste back into your page.

Yeah I ended up just exporting it as a .csv file, opening it in NeoOffice... adding an incrementing id field, then sorting by this new field descending, then deleting hte field, and importing the .csv back into golive. I had to clean it up a lot though, lots of things got put into their own row that shouldn't have. Oh well its all good now. Thanks.
