I know how to use the ORDER BY clause to display data from a database table in a certain order, as dictated by a particular field. But is there a way to order the display according to the number of characters?
It would help me implement my linkify script - http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/showthread.php?t=485677 - if I could order various terms from the longest (e.g. South_Pole) to shortest (e.g. South).
