Hi David,

I don't think that you need the /. to sort into document order. Path
expressions (e.g. ancestor::*) all return sequences in document order

Also note common error #2 - the context node within the return
expression is the same as the context node outside the for expression.
You cannot do name(.) (or you'll get the same name, of the current
node, repeated over and over again), you must do name($i).

Again, a for expression without a range variable, or one that uses an
operator, would prevent this error.
