sorry for the late answer. My problem is not solved. Maybe i am too stupid.
There is also a little change in my problem. I sort not with
data-type=number, but with the data-typ=text.
My code looks like this: (pb_number is not really a number. Its a number
with a prefix like PB9999, therefore the sort with data-typ=text)
<xsl:sort select="boolean(pb_number)" order="descending"/>
<xsl:sort select="pb_number" data-type="text"/>
Entries with empty sequenz
So still the problem is that the entries with an empty sequenz as pb_number
are shown first in the table.
Can anyone help again ?
Thank you for your support.

I have a similar problem (with data-type=number) a short time ago ... but
the solution at that time doesnt work here for this current problem.
the solution I posted (negating the sort key) doesn't work for non
numeric keys, but the solution Mike posted (which was probably more
sensible anyway) does work here. Just have an initial xsl:sort that is
as that will sort everything as either "true" or "false" depending on
whether my_text selects any nodes. so you can then specify ascending or
descending to control whether the empty case ("false") sorts before or
after the non-empty case ("true")
