Suppose you are grouping employees by department and write

<xsl:for-each-group select="employee" group-by="department/@code">
  <xsl:sort select="department/budget"/>

This xsl:sort controls the order in which the departments are listed. It
does not control the order of the employees within each department.

Is this where your confusion lies?
