Well Pedant, that is one way to "parameterize" an ORDERBY clause. You say tomato, I say tomahto kind of a thing (and not really to the point of the original post. :))

The point we're all making is very simple: sort and page in the same place -- either both on the server, or both on the client. Don't page on the server and sort on the client or vice versa.

We cool?
