I'm still not able to get my sort to work, unfortunately. Again, here is my XML
document and XSL. I want it to sort by whatever the element is in /PAGE/@sort.
I have tried so many combinations to try and tell it where to find the
attribute @sort. I'm assuming that not finding it is what's causing it not to

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<PAGE title="Display Projects" sort="title">
                                        Test Title

<xsl:template match="projects">
   <xsl:sort select="Here is where I need help!"/>
