No, this is actually exactly what I'm trying to do.  What I've got is
a string like:


and it does a 
where intid is in ("2,5,6,1,7,3,10")

What I'd LIKE is to be able to say order by intid (2,5,6,1,7,3,10) or
something like that.  Instead, it'll sort by the actual intid and give
me back 1 2 3 5 6 7 10

Failing that, I just uploaded a version that does the sorting
manually, even though I'm not thrilled doing it that way.  The
playlist reordering is a little gimpy, it's a combined version of some
javascript listbox reordering I found in tutorials modified to do what
we need.  I don't particularly LIKE it though, but can't think of
another great way to do it that isn't cumbersome.

I'm sending out a few emails to people who are a heck of a lot better
with css than me, and maybe they can point me in the right direction. 
I'd really like to be able to drag and drop list items in an unordered
list, I think that'd be ideal.

Newer version is in the same place, patched against current CVS.
