oh I missed that. If the input is under your control then you can make
it look like

<stuff><padding>000</padding>5 (foo)</stuff>
<stuff><padding>00</padding>15 (bar)</stuff>

sorting on "stuff" will work the same way (as the string value of stuff
is unaffected by adding the padding markup, and then to render the
contents you use apply-templates together with
<xsl:template match="padding"/>
