iterate alphabet
Dave,

Another way would be to hardcode your alphabet as a set of nodes in your stylesheet:

<my:alphabet xmlns:my="my.com">
  <l>a</l>
  <l>b</l>
  <l>c</l>
  <l>d</l>
  <!-- etc. -->
</my>

<xsl:variable name="alphabet" select="document('')/*/my:alphabet/l"/>

Then just iterate over these, or iterate over the nodes you already have with a test whether its initial letter (normalized) is = $alphabet.

It may be a little less cumbersome than recursion.

Cheers,
Wendell
