Test case as an html file

The problem with your test case is that your code is wrong.

the comparator function you provide returns inconsistent values which per spec
results in undefined sorting.

Your comparator function is returning either true or false when it should be
returning -1, 0, or 1, this means your comparator is inconsistent  as if i pass
the strings "a" and "b" in one order your comparison function returns true (eg.
1) -- meaning "greater" -- or the other order it returns false (eg. 0) --
meaning "same".
