Have you tried sorting the table in word then copying it and pasting it into the Confluence editor tool rather than into the Confluence html? I noted when I tried a quick demo version of Confluence that the built-in editor is very similar to the built-in editor in WordPress. I use that sort of workflow to build tables for WordPress pages because WordPress has very limited support for tables.

Best Regards,

Mike

The tables are already in Confluence. This comes up when an SME
drafted a table and didn't think to put it in any logical order, or
when a short table grows so long that it becomes hard for readers to
find what they're looking for.

My current workflow is:
- sort rendered table in Confluence
- copy table
- open word processor
- paste in word processor
- export to HTML
- open HTML in text editor
- strip out CSS
- copy table rows HTML
- edit source in Confluence
- select table rows HTML
- paste

What I'd like to do is:
- edit source in Confluence
- select and copy table rows
- open text editor
- paste
- sort
- copy
- switch back to Confluence and paste
