(HINT) ... Or 5 consecutive sort statements if you need to prove to the
pointy hairs that SQL and XSLT are not just older, primitive EXCEL!

Getting them to listen, well that's another thing.

You need to use two consecutive sort statements:

<xsl:sort select="deptno" order="ascending"/>
<xsl:sort select="job" order="ascending"/>

The default ordering is ascending. So you can just write:

<xsl:sort select="deptno" />
<xsl:sort select="job" />
