I meant the following code:

<xsl:template match="/">
        <xsl:param name="sort">fname</xsl:param>
        <xsl:apply-templates select="person">
                <xsl:sort select="$sort"/>

As David said, this is a FAQ:

<xsl:sort select="*[name(.)=$sort]"/>

... but this isn't namespace-safe.

I hope this helps.
