don't use name there, use

	<xsl:when test="self::draw:control">

which is namespace aware and generally nicer.

Although in this case the xsl:choose construct looks very odd, it seems
to be implementing apply-templates

why not just have

<xsl:template name="draw:text-box">
<xsl:apply-tempaltes select="*">

and then replace

<xsl:template name="draw:control'">


<xsl:template match="draw:control'">


  <xsl:sort order="ascending"

here the number() function is not doing anything very much (it is just
stripping leading zeros) it is converting the string to a number but the
xsl:sort will convert that number back to a string and do a textual
lexicographic comparison. You don't want number() but you do want to add
to your xsl:sort elements to get numeric comparisons.

<xsl:sort order="ascending" data-type="number"
<xsl:sort order="ascending" data-type="number"
