Sorry, I've just noticed I've got my oper*s mixed up!!

Heres corrected version:

> This is a theoretical bit of XSL code which I need a practical version of:

> <xsl:for-each select="//$record-type">
> 	<xsl:sort select="$sort-by" order="$sort-order" />
> 	<xsl:if test="$lh-operand $operater $rh-operand">
> 		<tr>
>  			<xsl:for-each select="*">
> 				<td><xsl:value-of select="." /></td>
> 			</xsl:for-each>
> 		</tr>
> 	</xsl:if>
> </xsl:for-each>
