Re: Sorting Upper-Case first. Microsoft bug?
I wrote Of course XSLT 1.0 doesn't actualy define "lexicographic" but my understanding is that it always implies a direct extension on an ordering on characters to an ordering on strings by comparing the first different position. See for example the definition given here: http://mathworld.wolfram.com/LexicographicOrder.html Note that (despite the etymology) "lexicographic order" doesn't necessarily mean "the order used in a dictionary" as dictionaries are compiled by human compilers and words can appear in whatever order the compiler chooses which may reflect personal and culturalpreferences as much as logic. However lexicographic ordering is used in a technical sense as a method of extending the ordering on one set (the alphabet) to a derived set (strings over that alphabet).
