Sort HTML Table

I'm trying to use the sort feature in this article: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dndude/html/dude07232001.asp

This article explains how to highlight rows, sort rows and move columns. I have no problem with the highlight, but when I try to sort I get little white boxes under or beside my column headers and when I click to sort i get a runtime error telling me the column contents (the first row of the column contents) in undefined.

I wonder if my span tags are the problem.

Here is part of the code:

<table style="BEHAVIOR: url(sort.htc);BORDER-COLLAPSE: collapse" slcolor='#FFFFFF' hlcolor='#D0E4f7'
                  border="0" bordercolor="#111111" id="AutoNumber1" width="100%" cellpadding="0">
<THEAD>
                        <tr>
<% if not ReadOnlyActive then %>
<td width="25"><span style="PADDING-LEFT: 1px;  FONT-SIZE: 8pt;  OVERFLOW: visible;  COLOR: #0000ff;  FONT-FAMILY: Tahoma">Out</span></td>
<td width="35"><span style="PADDING-LEFT: 1px; FONT-SIZE: 8pt; OVERFLOW: visible; COLOR: #0000ff; FONT-FAMILY: Tahoma">Move</span></td>
<%end if %>
<td width="54"><span style="PADDING-LEFT: 1px; FONT-SIZE: 8pt; OVERFLOW: visible; COLOR: #0000ff; FONT-FAMILY: Tahoma">Carrier</span></td>

etc. to </THEAD>

<TBODY>
<tr>
<% if not ReadOnlyActive then %>
<td width="25" height="20"><a href="..\movementpages\movement.aspx?PageMode=Outbound&amp;TrailerSCAC=<%=rs.TrailerSCAC%>&amp;TrailerID=<%=rs.TrailerID%>" style="PADDING-LEFT: 1px; LEFT: 0.031in; OVERFLOW: hidden; WIDTH: 16px; CURSOR: hand; COLOR: #ff0000; TOP: 0in; HEIGHT: 16px">O*</a></td>
<td width="35" height="20"><a href="..\movementpages\movement.aspx?PageMode=Move&amp;TrailerSCAC=<%=rs.TrailerSCAC%>&amp;TrailerID=<%=rs.TrailerID%>" style="PADDING-LEFT: 1px; LEFT: 0.031in; OVERFLOW: hidden; WIDTH: 16px; CURSOR: hand; COLOR: #ff0000; TOP: 0in; HEIGHT: 16px">M*</a></td>
<%end if %>
<td width="54" height="20"><span style="PADDING-LEFT: 1px; FONT-SIZE: 8pt; OVERFLOW: visible; COLOR: black; FONT-FAMILY: Tahoma"><%=rs.CarrierSCAC%></span></td>
<td width="54" height="20"><span style="PADDING-LEFT: 1px; FONT-SIZE: 8pt; OVERFLOW: visible; COLOR: black; FONT-FAMILY: Tahoma"><%=rs.TrailerSCAC%></span></td>

etc. </TBODY>

I would copy the table and remove all style formatting and all scripts etc so its just a simple table.

Get the simple table working with the sorter then try applying the style and scripts to it

Ignore that horrible article on Microsoft's site.  IE-only stuff hurts the Web.  There are plenty of standards compliant ways to sort tables that work in all browsers.  Here are a couple:
