Reply to: Convert <table> to <simpletable>

I've posted my table sort demo here: http://forums.xmetal.com/index.php/topic,458.msg

If someone wants to take the same idea + Severin's XSLT that would be great. I'm not sure how soon I can get to that (stuff I do is generally also delayed by the need for me to write up something really nice, clearly worded, containing our legal statements, etc).

To integrate my script with Severin's XSLT would probably require his XSLT to be cut down to

only, and my script would need to be modified to pass the entire
rather than just the .

I was also thinking it might be nice to insert the after the existing

(without removing it) so the author can compare the two in case they lose something in the conversion. Then they could easily manually delete the original
if they don't want it.
