Thanks Jacque and Craig. Your ideas have helped me out.

I wonder why runrev can embed stacks/revlets in web pages but can't  
come up with a "sort text by char" command. (It's sort of like the  
proverbial "We can go to the moon, but we can't ..." question.) Maybe  
string sorting is useless except in my situation.
