If i understand your problem correctly...

Create another xml document sort.xml for example:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<sort>
 <x order="1">C3</x>
 <x order="2">C2</x>
 <x order="3">C1</x>
</sort>

The where you wish to sort your elements

<xsl:sort data-type="number"
select="document('sort.xml')/sort/x[.=current()/@attributename]/@order"
order="ascending"/>
