FWIW, one of our writers reported that the paragraph catalog sorts 
differently on her home PC than her work PC. At first glance, it 
appeared to be a simple reverse sort, but it was her home PC so we did 
not investigate closely.

The tag "tp, table para" was showing up at the bottom of the list rather 
than the top. Following up on Fred's observation, I see that all of our 
other tags beginning "tp" have three characters before the comma.

Since the writer has the same FM software in both places, it's not 
likely to be Frame, unless there's a hidden setting that controls this.
