First, I'd like to thank you for posting the link to sqlfiddle.  I had no idea that was out there what a great tool for sites like this.  There are times I would like it mandatory for some of the questions I've attempted to answer here.

BTW, although ScottPletcher's answer above will work exactly as you requested; I would avoid using ordinal values in the ORDER BY clause.  Use the column names instead.
