The Jump To: section on the phobos 2 docs could be made a lot easier by sorting the anchors listed alphabetically.

I looked at the html source and noticed that they are generated by some Javascript.

Here's a replacement for the function in there now that does this sorting:

<script>
function listanchors()
{
    var a = document.getElementById("quickindex");
    if (!a) return;
    var newText = "";
    var hash = new Array;
    var n = 0;
    var values = new Array;
    // List all anchors.
    for (var i = 0; i < document.anchors.length; i++)
    {
        var a = document.anchors[i];
        var text = a.name;
        if (hash[text] > 0) continue;
        hash[text] = 1;
	values[n++] = a.name
    }

    values.sort();

    for(var i = 0; i < values.length; i++) {
    	var a = values[i];
        newText += '<a href="#' + a + '"><span class="d_psymbol">'
                + a + '</span></a> ';
    }
    if (newText != "") newText = "<p><b>Jump to:</b> " + newText + '</p>';
    var a = document.getElementById("quickindex");
    a.innerHTML = newText;
}
</script>



I'm not sure where this was generated from, or how to submit a real patch, so I posted it here and on the bugzilla: http://d.puremagic.com/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=3840


It's a little thing, but one that I think would be a nice help.
