Excellent question, and one I only thought of after posting mine! There would need to be a series of precedence rules, and I don't know them.
But to simplify, let's say you had unique examples of styled tex, and t that you wanted to maintain their styles. For example, in this mini-dictionary I've got 26 (almost) unique headings: A B C D... etc. bold, larger font, underlined. I want them to maintain their integrity while adding in a batch of new words. Would it be possible to sort while leaving alone the htmlText characteristics of first instance items in a field such as this?
