I have a ordered list. I need to know how to move an item to specific location in list?

Like thru java script if I want to move item 1 to position 10 in list, how do i do that?

Also If there is already an item at position 10, then I want to push down all items after position 10 .

Please help

Do you mean interactively, or programatically?

I will ask user where he want to move item. If he says i wan to move item on position 10, I want to pass the position no. to a JS function and then move item on that position. If the spot is already occupied, push that item (and all items after ) down.
