OK,

An application sorts messages by date, the oldest date is listed first, the
newest date is listed last. Is this considered 'ascending'? The same
application sorts names A-Z. Is this considered 'descending'? My colleague
and I both agree that the first example is ascending, and the second example
is descending, but the application is supposed to sort both lists in either
ascending or descending order (both lists should be sorted the same way)....
