RE:  Troubleshooting a sort
Untested but reasonable idea:

Replace this:
<xsl:sort select="*[name()=$param1]"/>

With this:
<xsl:sort select="descendant::*[name()=$param1]"/>

By the way, where are you applying this template that requires you to use the "//" to preface the XPath. Double slashes are often a poor XSLT programming practice resulting in unnecessary tree traversal and could lead to performance problems and incorrect and hard-to-diagnose bugs. Use them only when there is no other reasonable option.
