I have a document here where I am attempting to sort it using multiple valu=
es. Here is the XML:

                <ability rank=3D"1">XML 1.0</ability>
                <ability rank=3D"1">XSLT 1.0</ability>
                <ability rank=3D"2">XSLT 2.0</ability>
                <ability rank=3D"1">HTML 4.01 / XHTML 1.0</ability>
                <ability rank=3D"1">CSS</ability>

The XSL:

   <xsl:template match=3D"computer">
   [<span class="skills">
                        <xsl:apply-templates select="language">
                            <xsl:sort select="@rank" order="ascending"/>

The output now is in the same order as it is in the order of the document w=
hen the @rank value is 1, and followed by the one where @rank=3D2.

[XML 1.0] [XSLT 1.0] [HTML 4.01/XHTML 1.0] [CSS] [XSLT 2.0].

Is it possible that I can get it to display as

[CSS] [HTML 4.01/XHTML 1.0] [XML 1.0] [XSLT 1.0] [XSLT 2.0]


Thanks to those who can help.
