One of the parameters I pass is:

<xsl:param name="sortField"/>

And into this param i pass the XML:


rather than use 12 parameters (four for each <xsl:sort/>), I had hoped that
using this XML I would be able to read the values out like so:

	<xsl:sort select="$sortField/SortField[1]/Sort"
order="{$sortField/SortField[1]/Order}"/> (and so on for the data-type and

As far as I can tell the order attribute should read "acsending" out of the
XML but I've no real way of finding out what it is reading.

> 	{"order must be 'ascending' or 'descending'"}
it may be an AVT evaluating to either of those, so presumably in your
case $sortField/SortField[1]/Order evaluates to something else
(such as "" ?) what's your definition of  $sortField
