Would anyone be able to tell me how to go about this..? The script I'm looking to convert is this:

Code:
<script type="text/javascript">
// sort all divs with classname 'sortitem' by html content
function sort_div_content() {
	//thanks to Thomas Sturm for this lovely little piece of javascript
	// copy all divs into array and destroy them in the page
	divsbucket = new Array();
	divslist = $$('div.sortitem');
	for (a=0;a<divslist.length;a++) {
		divsbucket[a] = divslist[a].dispose();
	}

	// sort array by HTML content of divs
	divsbucket.sort(function(a, b) {
		if (a.innerHTML.toLowerCase() === b.innerHTML.toLowerCase()) {
			return 0;
		}
		if (a.innerHTML.toLowerCase() > b.innerHTML.toLowerCase()) {
			return 1;
		} else {
			return -1;
		}
	});

	// re-inject sorted divs into page
	for (a=0;a<divslist.length;a++) {
		divsbucket[a].inject($('Shelf'));
	}
}

// sort by attributes - usage for our example: sort_div_attribute('sortweight');
function sort_div_attribute(attname) {
	// copy all divs into array and destroy them in the page
	divsbucket = new Array();
	divslist = $$('div.sortitem');
	for (a=0;a<divslist.length;a++) {
		divsbucket[a] = new Array();
		// we'vev passed in the name of the attribute to sort by
		divsbucket[a][0] = divslist[a].get(attname);
		divsbucket[a][1] = divslist[a].dispose();
	}

	// sort array by sort attribute content
	divsbucket.sort(function(a, b) {
		if (a[0].toLowerCase() === b[0].toLowerCase()) {
			return 0;
		}
		if (a[0].toLowerCase() > b[0].toLowerCase()) {
			return 1;
		} else {
			return -1;
		}
	});

	// re-inject sorted divs into page
	for (a=0;a<divslist.length;a++) {
		divsbucket[a][1].inject($('Shelf'));
	}
}
</script>
The provider of the script seemed to imply it should be fairly easy to amend but in all honesty I have no idea how to... The script is a way to sort DIVs or the like by their title/name/attributes.

Any replies would be much appreciated!!
