Subject:HTML tables from sorted XSL Author:Dan Wonacott Date:28 Nov 2007 08:41 PM
I'm trying to create a two-dimensional table where each cell is filled according to XML node data which are sorted. This is something we commonly require and have yet to find a solution.
The only solution I can come up with cheats by using CDATA sections to open and close the table rows which, although totally effective, I don't believe is using XSL appropriately and I'd like to find a better solution. The XML and XSL should explain the problem more clearly:

Thanks for your reply, it's an excellent solution. I was hoping there might be a way to do this without repeating the sort; I imagine this to be inefficient with large XML but I can't see there's an XSL alternative. Fortunately, the data I'm working with is pretty small so this will fit the bill perfectly. Thanks again!
