That's an "if" with no "else" part -- I don't know if that's
significant, or what happens if you do that.  Other parens are screwed
up, I think (is that last line a hanger-on leftover after editing?).

So there is a way to get character data?  I was wondering how to
distinguish the input
    <ltt-name>A name goes here</ltt-name>
and, if so, how to extract "A name goes here" as a string usable in
DSSSL.  If "n" is the ltt-name node, then, I can do
    (string (node-property 'char n))
to get the character data, and
    (equal? 'data-char (node-property 'class-name n))
to find out if it has character data?  Or are the characters attached
to child nodes of n?  How can entities be handled, as in

If I get the string values, I would like to sort nodes based on their
<ltt-name> value.  I see a general sorter (quicksort-maker) at
an FAQ-like document.
