Is this list generated?

Of course it's generated! You don't think I'd type all that by hand, do you? ;-)

Are you/we going to populate it later manually?

My intention is to update the list as new snippets are posted.

Can the order by title ignore leading punctuations?

The number of ways to order this list is virtually infinite. I chose the easiest one. I thought about doing it as you suggest, but then I considered that if I'm going to skip leading "junk", then I should also consider junk such leading alphanumeric strings as "code", "golf", and "updated"... and that's obviously a lot more work. Maybe later. ;-)
Did you check out Snippets Permuted Index? Maybe that will do what you want, since it ignores non-\w characters.

Can you/we fix the layout?

There's nothing wrong with the layout. If you're having problems, maybe the table is too wide for your screen. It also happens (for me, at least) that sometimes the page does not get served in its entirety before the connection is closed. This could cause page rendering problems.
I've moved the list off site. Let me know if you still experience problems with it.

    There's nothing wrong with the layout.

    If you believe that then you either need to turn off enforcement of HTML nesting or turn up its error reporting and open your eyes. Your truncated nodes leave a <table> unclosed, which can mess up formatting seriously.

    Update: The truncated content has been (without an 'update' notice) moved off-site where it is surely no longer truncated, in case you (the reader) are wondering what the heck I was talking about above.

    If you did that the whole monastery would probably curse you :-) Actually, the real question is the next right one, which you answered,
    My intention is to update the list as new snippets are posted.
    But no, I won't ask how you would do that ;-)

    I'm sorry, I never thought about this. Some people just put any leading chararcter in the title. OK, I'm fine with this.
    I've moved the list off site. Let me know if you still experience problems with it.
    Now, I'm having new problems. The New Snippets Index gives me:
    PerlMonks Snippets - By Title

    Generated on 2007-06-07

    And the Snippets Permuted Index gives me:
    PerlMonks Snippets - Permuted Titles

    Generated on 2007-06-07
    160544
    248201

    Those are the whole-page for each link from your nodes. The links on the offsite pages would bring me to the non-sessioned pages where I'm not logged in. Is this intended? What happens?
