It works great, and is a lot easier to use than the row-numbering method I was
using before. 

I am using Yair Rand's method on a ShoutWiki wiki. Currently using this easy
method on the tables on these pages: 
*http://cannabis.shoutwiki.com/wiki/2014list 
*http://cannabis.shoutwiki.com/wiki/2013list 

Before I would have to manually create a cell at the beginning of each row in
the table. Here is the table with the old method:
*http://cannabis.shoutwiki.com/w/index.php?title=2014list&oldid=21668

Now all I have to do is add this to the top line of any table: 

class="sortable autonumber"

I adapted the CSS a little. Here it is:
http://cannabis.shoutwiki.com/wiki/MediaWiki:Common.css 

I removed the border coloring, and I used # for the header. See: 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Number_sign 
# is more common in American English. 

I hope this easy method can be implemented soon on Wikipedia and the Commons.
It is by far the easiest auto-row-numbering method I have seen. It would make
things a lot easier than the hacks currently listed at Help:Sorting: 
*https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Sorting - see "Static column" and following
sections.
