Hi folks,

I'm fairly new to xsl but I have looked everywhere to the answer to my problem 
with no joy.  Perhaps someone can help?

I have a table that I need to allow the sort order to be changeable on so I 
have implemented a parameter based sort like so:

<xsl:apply-templates select="teams/group">
   <xsl:sort select="*[local-name()=string($sortRequested)]" 

If $sortRequested = 'name' and name is a node below group it works OK.
If $sortRequested = '@name' and name is an attribute of group it dosn't work.

What am I doing wrong?
Thanks for any help.
