That's never been part of the contract and, as Tres notes, it's inconsistent. The implmentation will only sort when it uses the multi-line representation of the dict, not the single-line form. I don't oppose adding this to the contract and fixing it for the single-line representation for Python 2.5, but I'd rather think more about what the right interface is between displayed objects and the formatter. This is where a component architecture would really come in handy in the standard library. :-) -Fred -- Fred L.
