Re: [BULK]   Sorting a TEI <biblStruct> bibliography by
Your code works for me, Charles. (I'm running it as XSLT 2.0 using
Saxon-HE 9.5.1.3J on the commandline.)

HOWEVER, the select= attribute of your <xsl:sort> will try to select *all*
of the <surname> descendants of each child of each <biblStruct>. If
there is more than one, you will get "max 1 item allowed on
xsl:sort/@select" or some such. E.g.
    <biblStruct>
      <monogr>
        <title>Mooses Come Walking</title>
        <author>
          <persName>
            <forename>Arlo</forename> <surname>Guthrie</surname>
          </persName>
        </author>
        <respStmt>
          <resp>illustrator</resp>
          <persName>
            <forename>Alice</forename> <surname>Brock</surname>
          </persName>
        </respStmt>
        <imprint>
          <publisher>Chronicle Books</publisher>
          <pubPlace>San Francisco</pubPlace>
          <date when="1995"/>
        </imprint>
      </monogr>
      <idno type="ISBN">0-8118-1051-8</idno>
    </biblStruct>
dies with that kind of message. (Besides, even if it worked, it would
sort differently depending on whether <author> or <respStmt> happened
to appear first, which is fragile. And yes, Alice Brock is the
"Alice" of _Alice's Restaurant_.)
