you don't want to match the variable you want to match an element.

If you go

<xsl:variable name="x">

<xsl:apply-templates select="xx:node-set($x)"/>

Then you are applying templates to a document that looks like

ie a tree that has

root node (/)
child element a
  grandchild element b
child element c
child element d

so if your template for / is the default one the above apply templates
will then apply templates to the children so you want templates matching
a c and d.

If you want to do those in a different order, instead do

<xsl:apply-templates select="xx:node-set($x)/*">
  <xsl:sort select="lkskdashc"/>

Now you are not selecting the root node any more, just directly
selecting the children a c d and processing them in some order.
