What is the ordering principle of the digits below?

8,5,4,1,7,6,3,2,0
2. 06 May '11 17:02
alphabetic (e, fi, fo, o, se, si, th,tw,z

Why this letter order?

t, d, v, z, e, d, z, n, d, n, e, z, e, d, z, d, n, e, z, e, d, n, d, n, z

(this is the difficult version, I can post an easier version if it proves unsolvable)

I see a lot of "zed"s. Perhaps it's some sort of modification of letters. Zed = z

Not even close. Sorry.

4 bases in DNA?

No and no. I'll post the easier version later today. You should be able to solve that one fairly quickly and then use that solution, some creative thinking and Google to solve the first one.

then it repeats?

I'm not sure what you mean by that. Anyway, here's the easy version:

t, t, f, s, e, t, s, n, t, t, t, t, f, f, f, f, f, s, s, s, s, s, e, e, n

Now solve it already, for crying out loud. It's not rocket science.

It's not nice on the poor old nekulturny foreigners to post the Dutch version, Ratty.

(The next one is h, and so will the handful following that. It gets monotonous thereafter.)

at the end of the sequence, does it repeat itself?

Mr. Shallow Blue has found the answer (and has given a rather big clue about the first set of letters...). No, it doesn't repeat itself.
