I did this on one of our servers a while back. As I recall it only  
required that I comment out this statement  
"properties.sort(CompareProperties);" at line 2294 in ajaxmappane.templ.  
Then the properties are displayed in the same order they appear in the  
underlying datasource.

The other thing I've done is add leading SPACE charcters to the display  
name for the field in the Layer setup. Since HTML collapses multiple  
spaces into a single space this allows me to specify exactly which order  
they sort in.

It would be wonder to have and ORDER BY clause available.
