I've come to realize that no sorting technique is going to work because you
can't include the missing nodes in the sort criteria at the point I need
them, you can only make them appear first or last(as the boolean() spec is
going to do). I've got to run against document B and somehow pick up that it
is missing a node from document A.

If I could do something like:


to find the node after the one I'm currently working I'd be set since then I
can test to see a node with the same name exists in document B and if not
use the values as needed... 

(I'm ok with using any Saxon and/or Xalan specific solutions...)
