> So, more specifically, how is that string used as an argument?  What's the significance of the "D99" or the "F1" or whatever the other value is?  That's the part I'm not sure about.  I want to leverage the ProcessHistory function with the keysort, but don't know what the argument value should be or how I determine what it should be.

its the sort key.  what _is_ sorted.

> a string; a number should also work but with keynsort.
