jQuery: Sort a list alphabetically
$(function() {
$.fn.sortList = function() {
var mylist = $(this);
var listitems = $('li', mylist).get();
listitems.sort(function(a, b) {
var compA = $(a).text().toUpperCase();
var compB = $(b).text().toUpperCase();
return (compA < compB) ? -1 : 1;
});
$.each(listitems, function(i, itm) {
mylist.append(itm);
});
}
$("ul#demoOne").sortList();
});

Works great, thanks! One modification that I made in my case, where I'm having few separate lists identified by a same class, was:

$('ul.demoOne').each(function(){ $(this).sortList; });
