Unless I'm misunderstanding your problem, this should not present any
difficulties.  For example, if your zope Z SQL Method is named
'select_sql', you can create the table like so:

  <dtml-in select_sql sort="last">
      <th><dtml-var first> <dtml-var last></th>
      <td><dtml-var email></td>
      <td><dtml-var id></td>

The sort argument lets you sort on any table column, and within the
dtml-in tags, you can reference the fields n any order you wish.

And I strongly hope this helped!
