Column Heading Alignment Rules for Placement ofData

I completely agree with the rules that Morten stated. On that note
however, I have a side question...

On columns that can be sorted:
1. Do you show an indicator as soon as the user gets to the page to
communicate which column is sorted?(even though in our case, it always
happens to be the first column) OR do you only show the indicator once
they've clicked a column header.
2. What direction should the arrow point if a column lists
alphabetically (A being at the top through Z being at the bottom)?
