Sorting a javascript array

I have an array which contains a mixture of strings and numbers representing an address line. For example "20 Main Street" etc

I have found examples of functions which sort alphabetically or which sort numerically. Using the alphabetic sort would mean that for example "16 Main St", would come before "2 Main Street".

Does anyone have an example of a function which would sort this kind of mixed data satisfactorily?

Thanks in advance

I'd suggest googling for sort alogrithms. Just about any of them could be adapted to Javascript.
