After spending some time with the Typo3 CMS I have a couple of opinions on the good, the bad and the ugly of this system.
I remember the old days when young people sat hooked in front of a TV screen manually copying a lot of assembly code from a printed listing in a magazine. Just imagine typing thousands of lines like “DATA 0E, 1F, 3C, 2D, 45, 2F, 63, 3A, 0F, 21, 54, 8F, FF, FE, 31, A0” and so on. I was one of them.
There are many ways to sort a table containing tabular data. A common approach is to perform the sort on the server using ASP or something similar, maybe out of routine using the same thought pattern as in ordinary desktop applications. An alternative for web pages is to do it with client-side scripting. The big advantage is of course that all activity takes place on the client side, thus avoiding any unneccessary chatting with the server.
