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.
