Pete, you are correct.  "Lines of the keys" are not sorted. 

Bob, thanks.  I have not ever seen "element" used before.  Interesting.

I tend to use for each line in the keys also, mainly because element
returns the contents of the array and I often find myself needing to know
the key value.  Plus if you need to get the array elements in key sequence,
I think you have put the keys into a variable and sort them then base the
repeat loop on the lines in the sorted variable... I think???
