  You can use the Modified Identity pattern:

    <xsl:output indent="yes"/>

    <!-- Identity transform -->
    <xsl:template match="node()">
          <xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>
          <xsl:apply-templates select="node()"/>

    <xsl:template match="root">
          <xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>
          <xsl:apply-templates select="*">
             <xsl:sort select="data/comment"/>

  The data/comment contents are not unique.  If you want to order a
second field to perform more precise sorting, you can do so using a
second xsl:sort instruction.  For instance, if you want to sort on
comment then on @name:

    <xsl:apply-templates select="*">
       <xsl:sort select="data/comment"/>
       <xsl:sort select="data/@name"/>
