Hi to all.

I've an XML like this:

   . other items...

In the XSL, the processor cycle through items with an <xsl:for-each> statement that select each item.
The order in wich each node being processed is defined by the content of a variable named $sort_node.
For example, if $sort_node contains "surname", I want the <xsl:sort> statement to be:

<xsl:sort select="surname"/>

I've tried with

<xsl:sort select="$sort_node"/>

but it doesn't work.

Any suggestion?
