Re: Sorting Using A Predefined Order
Andrew> which can also be written as: Andrew> <xsl:apply-templates select="(div, div, div, div, div)"/> oh yes if we're using xpath2 there's other ways as well eg <xsl:apply-templates select="for $p in (2,3,5,1,4) return div[$p]"/> this is equivalent to Andrew's although actually neither's quite equivalent to my original suggestion of 5 apply-templates calls, as in that case position() and last() would be equal to 1 each time whereas in either of the versions here, last() is 5 and position() would be 1..5, which is often preferable.
