maintain sorted list
Andrew,

Dimitre's method is a grouping method: you group the b elements and then run
through the group using position() to get the ranking.

It's also possible to maintain a variable containing one b per value of b
and use that as the means of knowing the rank of a b. The only advantage of
doing it this way is that you can group your b's any which way and still
know their rank.

Let's say you wanted to do this globally, ie, have only one ranking for b
elements applying to all of them. The variable can be global:

	<xsl:stylesheet version='1.0'
xmlns:xsl='http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform'>

	<xsl:key name='bs' match ='b' use='@val'/>
	<xsl:variable name="uniqueBs" select='//b[count(. | key("bs",
@val)[1]) = 1]'/>
In your case you can be a bit more specific than "//b" - you could use
"/root/a/b" and that will get all b elements.

Now whenever you want to know the rank of a current b element you just do
this:
	<xsl:value-of select='count($uniqueBs[@val &lt; current()/@val]) +
1'/>
This could be within another grouping, for example one that created a table
with three columns.

I've been playing with this idea and have created an interesting side
effect.

Using source:
<root>
	<a>
	    <b val="4">four</b>
	    <b val="9">nine</b>
	    <b val="6">six</b>
	    <b val="1">one</b>
	    <b val="8">eight</b>
	    <b val="6">six</b>
	    <b val="4">four</b>
	    <b val="7">seven</b>
	</a>
	<a>
	    <b val="9">nine</b>
	    <b val="5">five</b>
	    <b val="5">five</b>
	</a>
</root>

And style sheet:
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" 
 xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
 
 <xsl:output omit-xml-declaration="yes" indent="yes"/>
 
 <xsl:key name="kRanking" match="b" use="@val"/>
 
  <xsl:template match="/root/a">
    <a>
     <xsl:for-each select="b[generate-id() 
                              = 
                               generate-id(key('kRanking',@val)[1])
                               ]">
       <xsl:sort select="@val" data-type="number"/>
       
       <xsl:variable name="vPos" select="position()"/>
       
       <xsl:for-each select="key('kRanking',@val)">
         <b rank="{$vPos}">
           <xsl:value-of select="."/>
         </b>
       
       </xsl:for-each>
     </xsl:for-each>
    </a>
  </xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>

I now get:
<a>
	<b rank="1">one</b>
	<b rank="2">four</b>
	<b rank="2">four</b>
	<b rank="3">six</b>
	<b rank="3">six</b>
	<b rank="4">seven</b>
	<b rank="5">eight</b>
	<b rank="6">nine</b>
	<b rank="6">nine</b>
</a>
<a>
	<b rank="1">five</b>
	<b rank="1">five</b>
</a>

What have I done???
