That sorts nicely but unfortunately, we have several comments in front
of some node.

I haven't been able to come up with a method of grouping the comments
with their associated nodes. Would you have any suggestions?

The current xsl is:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
<xsl:output indent="yes" method="xml"/>

<xsl:template match="node() | @*">
<xsl:copy>
<xsl:apply-templates select="@* | node()"/>
</xsl:copy>
   </xsl:template>

 <xsl:template match="Ns">
     <xsl:copy>
         <xsl:apply-templates select="N">
            <xsl:sort select="@name"/>
       </xsl:apply-templates>
     </xsl:copy>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="N">
<xsl:copy-of select="preceding-sibling::node()[normalize-space()][1][self::comment()]
"/>
<xsl:copy-of select="."/>
</xsl:template>

</xsl:stylesheet>
