Sortable table[edit]

  • Working on a special sorting criteria for each column using the "span style none" tag. The premis is this:
    • When sorting by "Wins", the 4-time winners go to the top (in order of who accomplished it first..Foyt, unser, Mears)...followed by the 3-time order of accomplishments...etc. Using the sortkey tag of highest first...using a 3-digit number to keep things clear, Foyt gets 403 ("4" for the # of wins, "03" as the first/best of the 3), Unser gets 402, Mears gets 401...them Louis Meyer the first 3 time winners gets sort key 305, Shaw 304, Rose 303, JR 302, B. Unser 301...etc. So they sort top to bottom in the order we want them to.
    • Same would go for poles...Mears would be 601, Mays 402, Foyt 401, etc.
  • I feel this complicated sortkey work is needed because sortable tables care only about the first character, and not the length of the cell nor the actual content. Doctorindy (talk) 18:47, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
