Yes i've noticed this probs, the sort tag is slow and works only with
the first page... sigh!
But the problem now is another, haw can i modificate the search
syntax when i've the results displayed?
I know the search syntax: tf=[filed] to=[sort type] but i don't know
how re-get the search parameters and re-utilize changing them!
Many thanks to all
