Subject: TABLE sorting

Would it ever be possible to add a provision to sort tables?  Perhaps this
is more or less a user agent thing then an HTML thing, but the idea i had
was a way for a user to for example, click the header of a column and sort
the data in that particular column in numeric/alphabetic order..to make
things easier to find in some tables.. don't mean to start a big
discussion..just a little idea i thought up when looking at a 600KB .html
file that was all a big table wishing it could have sorted it differently..
