Question for native speakers: Does it have to be in the right order?
"Better still, Babylon is capable of translating completely novel sentences."
"Since then some figures have got better still."
"Better still, Mr Blair was a true believer, exuding conviction."
"Still better" would be used as follows: I'm not very pleased with this old dress, but it's still better than the ones I'm seeing in the stores now. Or: I know that Dean Martin songs are "oldies," but he is still better than that stuff you hear on the radio these days.
