Hi Allan,
  I have come up with a sorting algorithm. Hope its
correct, and suits your requirement ;)

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
xmlns:msxsl="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:xslt"
exclude-result-prefixes="msxsl">
<xsl:output method="xml" version="1.0"
encoding="UTF-8" indent="yes"/>
	
<xsl:template match="/dates">
  <xsl:variable name="RTF">
    <xsl:for-each select="endDate">
      <endDate>
	<xsl:value-of select="translate(.,'-','')"/>
      </endDate>
    </xsl:for-each>
  </xsl:variable>
		
  <xsl:for-each select="msxsl:node-set($RTF)/endDate">
     <xsl:sort select="." data-type="number"/>
     <endDate>
	<xsl:value-of select="substring(. , 1, 4 )"
/>-<xsl:value-of select="substring(. , 5, 2 )"
/>-<xsl:value-of select="substring(. , 7, 2 )" />-
     </endDate>
   </xsl:for-each>
</xsl:template>
	
</xsl:stylesheet>

Regards,
Mukul
