Hash tables--or any hash function--is for grouping. You are not guaranteed a sort, but you are guaranteed a grouping according to your hash function.
ex: you have a hash function that says add the first 2 digits of a number together to get the hash--so numbers starting with "01" and "10" hash to the same grouping, but you cannot, at least IMO, say they are sorted.
