Re:  Output sorted XHTML table for a subset of elements

I'm not familiar with your XSLT library, but the following XSLT worked for me:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
   <xsl:output method="html" encoding="Windows-1252" />

   <xsl:template match="/users">
                  <xsl:for-each select="user">
                     <xsl:sort select="lines" data-type="number"
                     <xsl:if test = "lines > 25">
                     	<td><xsl:value-of select="@name"
/>(<xsl:value-of select="lines" />)</td>
