    Really!? Would you not expect 99A to come (much) after 99?!
    After all, 99A (in hexadecimal) is greater than 99 (hexadecimal).

    I'm sorry, I could not let this one go ;-).

    (Most people use decimal, you included I would guess, so I'm
    NOT suggesting any change to the ordering you referred to.)

    Can we end this thread on hexadecimal now? I'm sure it
    doesn't lead anywhere.
