Thanks for your suggestions. One thing that may complicate things is that
I do my sorting based on parameters that the user enters at run-time that
specify the desired column to sort on, whether the column should be sorted
as text or as a number and whether the sort is ascending or descending.
I tried to incorporate your suggestions, but failed. Can you help me adjust
stylesheet so that I can get the TOTAL to stay on the bottom (and perhaps to
the zero on the top until Apache fixes their bug)?

Here is a snippet of my stylesheet:

<xsl:template match="data">
	<xsl:apply-templates select="row">
		<xsl:sort select="*[name()=$sortcolumn]"
data-type="{$sort_type}" order="{$sortorder}"/>

Here is the relevant part of the XML:

You can do this with xsl:apply-imports.  Have the first file *import*
the second file with xsl:import (which has to come before anything
else within xsl:stylesheet):

<xsl:import href="file2.xsl" />

And then use xsl:apply-imports in your template:

<xsl:template match="ELEMENT">
   <xsl:variable name="result-from-file2">
      <xsl:apply-imports />
   ... something with $result-from-file2 ...

The processor takes the current node (the ELEMENT node) and tries to
find a template in any imported stylesheet that matches it, and
executes that.
