I have to maintain a large number of classic ASP pages, many of which have tabular data with no sort capabilities at all. Whatever order the original developer used in the database query is what you’re stuck with.
What I want to do for the UI is just indicate sort direction with the caret character ( ^ ) and … what? Is there a special character that is the direct opposite of a caret? The letter
v won’t quite cut it. Alternatively, is there another character pairing I can use?
