Hi Marcel,

Think, there are better and shorter implementations do this, but this
might be one way to come by:

<xsl:output method="xml"/>

<xsl:template match="/foo">
	<xsl:element name="foo">
		<xsl:for-each select="bar">
		<xsl:sort select="@id" order="ascending"></xsl:sort>
			<xsl:element name="bar">
				<xsl:attribute name="id"><xsl:value-of
				<xsl:for-each select="item">
				<xsl:sort select="@id"
					<xsl:element name="item">
name="id"><xsl:value-of select="@id"/></xsl:attribute>

Just put two sorted for-each-loops together and produce the output via
<xsl:element> and <xsl:attribute>. This produces the exactly the xml you
wanted. Or what else problem did you have with it?
