Re:  How to sort sibling elements based on attribute of
Hi again,

At 05:57 PM 7/6/2009, I wrote:
Assuming this is the case, try

<xsl:template match select="/*">
  <xsl:apply-templates select="Annotation[1]/preceding-sibling::*"/>
  <xsl:apply-templates select="Annotation">
    <xsl:sort select="*/@Priority"/>
  <xsl:apply-templates select="Annotation[last()]/following-sibling::*"/>

Also, as a fail safe, one might care to add:

<xsl:template match="/*[not(Annotation)]" priority="2">

which will override the template above in cases where the document element "/*" has no Annotation children -- when it would emit nothing.
