Those line item lecture dates don't appear to be urls/active links...just a list of data.

I run a website for my Son who teaches safe driving to (predominantly)
firefighters around the country. I started it around seven years ago. I am not a
pro at this. I started a list of classes he has taught and update it every time
he teaches. It's grown quite large. It starts with the first classes taught and
scrolls down to the most recent. A friend of mine who is a professional software
guy and writes apps, looked at it and suggested that the list be in reverse,
with the most recent classes being at the top. It would be a daunting task to
redo this whole list manually. I was wondering if there's any program that I
could copy and paste into, and then have it reverse the order? Here's a link to
the page if it helps. I have a feeling that I'll be sitting in front of the
keyboard doing this by hand, but it doesn't hurt to ask. Thanks.

As others have shown, reversing the list - using Excel or whatever - is
trivial.

But I'm not sure that will achieve what you want to do. Presumably each
of those titles on your website is actually a *link* to a page
containing the text of the lecture - which means that it has some
attached HTML code. That HTML needs to be kept with the relevant title,
and the whole thing reversed - otherwise it won't work.

So how do you suppose his website works?

While his website has active links, the list of past seminars (on his website) does not contain active links.

Go to http://www.drivetosurvive.org/
Click on 'Contact Us'
Click on the link that says
"Click here to see a ***list*** of past Drive to Survive seminars taught nationwide"

The ***list** of seminars will load (the same list the op provided in his initial post)
- Not a single list item is a clickable link...i.e it's just a text list of past seminars

So what's the point of reversing the list if the links are not also
reversed?

As several people have said already, (and you even quoted above), they
aren't links. They are a simple list of seminars. No links.

Yes ok, I accept defeat! I had assumed - apparently erroneously[1] -
that there was a link behind each item on the list, but that the OP had
just quoted the text part.

[1] Probably because, had it been my site, I wouldn't have seen much
point in displaying such a list *unless* each item contained a link to
some further information, transcript of lecture, etc.

Understandable...but a quick look at his web site (navigation route provided earlier) yields just a text list of past
seminars...that does not preclude more data may exist elsewhere, but not on the site the op provided.<g>
