if you could do something like this it would get hung up on languages
anyway, and would thus be processor dependant, like xsl:sort, if you're
sorting swedish or danish in saxon nothing gets sorted, have to use xalan.

couldn't one just do something like

<xsl:param name="alph">

<xsl:for-each select="$alph/letter[1] to $alph/letter[last()]">
