Re: testing dates
XSLT 1 only has numeric less than operation so if you give it to strings they are each converted to a number before comparing 2004-06-27 and 2004-09-05 both compare to NaN (Not-A-Number) I leave it to IEEE lawyers to confirm what exactly the value of NaN < NaN should be but I would guess that it's false, as you say. In XSLT2 you could cast the strings to dates then do a date-aware comparison.
