Thanks Joerg.  I've copied Oberon.Sort.Mod to 
https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Oberon/V4.Sort.Mod with an explanation 
and reference to the mailing list in the discussion page. If anyone 
can make Sort work in V4 and post a revision in the book, that will be 
a welcome contribution.

Incidentally there is now a Markup procedure in MediaWiki.  The output 
of MediaWiki.Markup * should reproduce color, boldness and 
italicization appearing identical to the original Oberon Text. Not 
thoroughly tested yet but the strategy seems better than in 
MediaWiki.Compile. Boldness and italicization will be useful with the 
stylistic conventions of V4 and similar systems.

In the EO and Oberon contexts, comments aren't italicized.  Therefore 
I anticipate reverting the italicization in Oberon.Sort.Mod.  No 
offense to Hans Klaver intended and thanks for suggesting the 
additional contexts. The italicization remains in V4.Sort.Mod.

Regards,                      ... Lyall E.
