Hi Folks,

First Question

Suppose that I use xsl:sort to sort these two names:  jeff  and Jeff

I ran some tests.  Here are the results:

xalan, xt, and msxml all sort the names as:

jeff
Jeff

saxon sorts the names as:

Jeff
jeff

Who's right?

Second Question

Consider the following xslt which redefines a variable, names, several
times:

<xsl:variable name="names" select="/FitnessCenter/Member[1]/Name"/>
<xsl:for-each select="/FitnessCenter/Member[position() &gt; 1]">
             <xsl:variable name="names" select="concat($names, '/')"/>
              <xsl:variable name="names" select="concat($names, Name)"/>
 </xsl:for-each>
<xsl:value-of select="$names"/>

xalan and xt have no problems with it.

saxon generates two error messages - saying that name has been redclared.

Who's right?  /Roger
