          <xsl:value-of select="$sortedlist"/>

  for a test. Instead of a sorted list of my original items I only got the
  (sorted) text nodes of each item

your debug statement is misleading you.
xsl:value-of, given a node set, gives the string value of the first node
in the set and discards any later nodes. the string value of an element
node is essentially any character data of descendents, ignoring
attributes etc.

Use copy-of to see the full node set, not value-of.
