Suppose I have a SortedMap:
SortedMap <String, String> map = new TreeMap<String, String>();

Open in new window

and then I add some values:
   map.put("Mary", "Orange");
   map.put("Bob", "Banana");
   map.put("Jack", "Apple");

Open in new window

It seems that by default, it puts them in alphabetical order.
How would I cause it to put it in order that they are added to the list?
