What I think you should be doing is sorting the <book> child nodes of
parent they have by title, something like:
Think of it as building a list of nodes to process using
select="..."/>, and then sorting them using <xsl:sort/>
Actually, the XSL I'm using is this:
I simplified it a little to make it a less distracting post. Sorry. I
hope I haven't wasted anyone's time.
The XSL really does seem to work fine. From a file of 2270 books, it
comes up with 632 that match my for-each.
And the sorting really does look un-flawed for the majority of the 632.
Making it easy to overlook the oddballs among them.
Here's a little more of the problem with the "Effect*" titles,
in-context, in case that reveals anything useful that I'm not seeing...
