I have a document with a lot of sections which need to be ordered by date. The date is given in the
format given in the subject: Wed, 05 Jan 2000 10:07:02. How would I go about? Being a novice I would
rather not re-invent the wheel (it will end up square). I took notice of two packages which might
help me (mxDateTime and normalDate), but it didn't seem straight forward. I welcome suggestions!
