No, but I've wanted to do the same... well, I've wanted to do the same for born-digital portions of inventories, wherein the data from any sort-able column could be generated and encoded automatically (date, title, file size, format, etc.). So, even though I don't know of any EAD examples that illustrate this, there are plenty of other examples online (here's one: http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/examples/datatable/dt_basic_clean.html ).
Do you have a container list from a specific collection in mind?

Does anyone know of any examples of delivering EAD finding aids in such a way that the inventory section can be sorted in different ways (by container, by title, by date) ?
