Sorting attachments from FileUpload when displayed on Web client

Is there a way to sort attachments that were attached using the FileUpload tool when displayed on the Web client?
Have a look at codestore.net. There's a nice set of articles on how to modify the default Domino behavior when displaying attachments:

Basically you first hide the attachments using a field that you name V2AttachmentOptions (text, computed for display) and let the value of the field compute to "0" to hide the attachments. Then you display the attachment(s) using code like this:
@If(!@Attachments; @Return(""); "");
"View attachments here:<br>" +
@Implode("<a href="" + @Text
(@DocumentUniqueID) + "/$file/" + 
@AttachmentNames + "">+
@AttachmentNames + </a>"; "<br>")
I hope you're using Domino R6. In R6 the @sort function has been implemented, and you will be able to use it to sort the list of attachments.

If you're on R5, go to the Lotus Developer Network R4/R5 forum and search for @sort. There are plenty of examples -- with lots of lines of code, I'm afraid.
