Yes, the XPath expression in select= is relative to the node being sorted.

If you had data along the lines of:

   <emp empnbr="234">.....
   <emp empnbr="123">....

... and if you were using iteration, you would use something along the 
lines of:

   <xsl:for-each select="emp">
     <xsl:sort select="@empnbr"/>
     ....
   </xsl:for-each>

XSL, XSLT and XPath questions would be better posted to the following list:

There are a number of subscribers who would enthusiastically respond to 
such questions.

I hope this helps.
