Hi Pele,

I'm not an authority on this.  You can sort stations, but you need to 
sort them through the web site, www.stationlist.net

You can navigate from the current station, from that point in the 
list.  But if you go back to the list of lists, i.e the main list, 
pod casts, publications and so on, when you enter the radio stations 
list you are at the top of the list.

I think the design concept, is to keep things as simple and not 
cluttered at all.  The user base is not populated by wiz kids, but 
often older individuals who my not be as able as some.  I guess it's 
the lowest common denomenator if that isn't too discourteous.  A 
numberpad with favourites seems a good approach, that wouldn't be too 
difficult for any user.

You can add any item, from any list, in to a book mark folder.

That's about all i know.  Hardly worth getting out of bed for..smile..
