I need an alernative to “before” and “after”, which alphabetize with after after before

Some software I use likes to alphabetize things, so I’d like an alternative to before and after, where sorting lexicographical is the same as sorting by time.

Answer

Ante and post, from Latin, which are represented verbatim in a.m. and p.m. and can also be used as prefixes in English words.
