Domains and the Field Calculator

What's the best way to update multiple rows in a database when using domains.  Is there any way of selecting values from a list in the field calculator when using coded values? 

One of the advantages of using domains is that I no longer have to look up code meanings because I can select the value from a dropdown list - however if I want to update several rows using the field calculator I seem to have to use the code, which means I have to look it up, which makes this domain a little pointless.... doesn't it?  I must be missing something.

Also.... is there a way of sorting the values in the dropdown list so they appear alphabetically?  I also notice that if I change one of the domain values it jumps to the bottom of the list - is there any way to fix this?
