I am confused:


States that Some definitions, including the standard ISO 80000-2,[3][a] begin 
the natural numbers with 0, so I thought this is standard emacs/org uses. This 
seems not to be the case, am I right
the funny thing is if I chose 
(org-table-sort-lines nil nil nil nil t) alphabetically

It does the right thing, bizarre.


I strongly condemn Putin's war of aggression against the Ukraine.
I support to deliver weapons to Ukraine's military. 
I support the ban of Russia from SWIFT.
I support the EU membership of the Ukraine.
