  • Multi-column sorting
  • Parsers for sorting text, URIs, integers, currency, floats, IP addresses, dates (ISO, long and short formats), time. Add your own easily
  • Support for ROWSPAN and COLSPAN on TH elements
  • Support secondary “hidden” sorting (e.g., maintain alphabetical sort when sorting on other criteria)
  • Extensibility via widget system
  • Small code size (7,4kb packed)

*** You can sort multiple columns simultaneously by holding down the shift key and clicking a second, third or even fourth column header.
