Hi,

I believe the online version of the HTE used to order the words in categories historically, as it should being a *historical* thesaurus. It now seems to sort alphabetically, e.g. <http://historicalthesaurus.arts.gla.ac.uk/category/?id=128551>

Even if this was not the case and the online version always sorted alphabetically, could historical sorting be enabled? That's kind of the point of a thesaurus on historical principles 

(I can appreciate that alphabetic sort may be useful in some cases, so perhaps the sort style could be made an option?)

Thanks,

dpk
