Couldn't resist to make David's solution general (not dependent on a
maximum digits in a number estimate) :o)    :

<xsl:stylesheet version="2.0"
    <xsl:output indent="yes"/>

    <xsl:template match="x">
      <xsl:variable name="vPattern">
        <xsl:for-each select="*">
          <xsl:sort select="string-length(.)"/>
            <xsl:if test="position() = 1">
              <xsl:sequence select="translate(.,'123456789.', '000000000')"/>
    <xsl:perform-sort select="*">
      <xsl:sort select="string-join(for $i in tokenize(.,'\.') return

The significant problems we have cannot be solved at the same level of
