Michael Kay wrote this response to a StackOverflow question :
Saxon's default collation is Unicode codepoint, which is fast but not smart. Setting lang="en" will immediately give you a smarter natural-language collation. There are then many options to refine it further.
QUESTIONS 1. Does Michael's response mean that, to set the collation, I can use the xml:lang attribute instead of the default-collation attribute?
2. Would you please give an example of a comparison where the result of the comparison is true when xml:lang="A" but false when xml:lang="B"? That is, what values would you place in here:
in the default unicode code point order A-Z come before a-z so Zebra comes before apple
<Test xml:lang="__"> <xsl:value-of select=" '__' lt '__' " /> </Test>
