Hi Michael,

Thank you for your response (and to the others too :-)
But sorry, I don't understand : what do you mean by tool or software?
In my soft, I'm only launching a FOP cmd under Windows.
And to retrieve my list, a XSLT stylesheet with:

<xsl:for-each select="//*[@tag=$tag]|//*[@tag=$tag2]|//*[@tag=$tag3]">
	<xsl:sort select="."/>

And for the different ordering rules, your right : in my case, I must use the
german swiss ordering sort, which is not the same as the german one. Quite
simple :-) I don't know how to manage this issue with XSL. Maybe any idea for
a workaround?

what Heiko meant: There is not a single "true" German sort order. Thats why
(as I remember) books like dictionaries or phonebooks explain their sorting

What you get is also dependent on the software and tool you use, as XSLT is
not defining any language sort order.
