Alphabetize/Sort with Pages

        After my complaining about Pages (7-24), let's hear from John Carter who explains how to sort lists: 
"Pages will only sort lists that are in a table. Here’s the process (gleaned from here):
     Select the paragraphs to sort.
     menu Format > Table > Convert text to table
     Select the table cells, then
     Inspector > Table >  Edit Rows and columns > Sort …
     menu Format > Table > Convert table to text."
