Ryan, as I understand from the XSLT spec and Mike Kays book (p 119) you cannot do all
that you want to in one go. The select attribute cannot use an attribute value template
though the order attribute can. The reason being that select requires an XPath pattern.
I guess the way round this is with a choose/when/when/.../otherwise construct with each
of the possible sort conditions explicitly stated.

Or is there another way ?
