    Question Mark

    I keep track of all my movies in a html file and have them organized using an index at the top with anchors to sort everything alphabetically, so you can simply click on the " G " and go to the G movies.

    However I'd like to take it to the next level and have an option to sort by genre as well. If I kept it in the same format as now, every time I add a movie I'd have to add it twice, once for alphabetically, once for genre.

    I'm looking for a more practical way of doing this. I'd like to keep it as simple as possible and as 'idiot proof' as possible and preferably keep it in html format so i can email the list to friends and they won't need any special software to view it.

    Any suggesetions?

    Search on XML + XSLT

    Pretty much, you can make a tag for each letter (<a> <b> <c> <d>) and a tag for each genre (<horror> <action>) and with the XSLT page, display the ones with the tag you want.
