Assuming 'foo' elements can have a 'bar' and a 'baz' attribute and you
want to process them sorted on @bar if present, otherwise on @baz then
the following XSLT 2.0
<xsl:sort select="(@bar, @baz)"/>
does that nicely I think.
How would you translate that to XSLT 1.0? I can only think of a
temporary tree (created with a node-set extension function) where you
create a new attribute merging the two attributes first, then process
the temporary tree sorted on the new attribute.
