.NET XSL processor (xsl 1) supplied with Visual Studio.NET 2003. It's
sad, I know...

this is actually what i was doing, EXCEPT the problem I was/am having is
that "following-sibling" ignores the sort imposed by xsl:sort. Which is
exactly how I ended up down the xsl:key path. I thought by organizing
the data with keys, I could trick the xsl into finding the post-sort
following-sibling. Isn't that the case?
