I wouldn't even want to try it "without" using CSS.
There is a working version (all browsers - including IE) which uses
unordered lists at:-
The data is held in 3 columns of a spreadsheet, where you can enter data at
the bottom of a "letter", then highlight the 3 columns associated with that
letter, use the sort option on the middle column, and your entry will be
sorted into its correct position.
Highlight all the data, copy and paste into your html.
