It is done on the server, and only rows needed are transferred on demand 
to the client. There's  only a cache  on the client side. Believe me, no 
chance to sort!

Why \t? I virtually never use that format. I prefer ; .... And \n or 
\n\r ? And so on. This is an endless story.

It's always the problem about those multifunctional controls. You often 
get partial features you don't really need, or even irritate. And it's 
even not complete, we're not too happy with in-place editing 
capabilities. If you'd like to implement a replacement... platform 
independent, of course.
