Can u please explain how the node-set function could help in this
context?
Sure...

In stead of the the clumsy 'substring()' approach, you could use a result tree fragment, given that you have got an extension function that can convert it to a node-set.

e.g.
<xsl:sort select="xx:node-set($sortkey)//e[position()=count(current()/preceding-sibling::e)]"/>


with this template:
<xsl:template match="e" mode="sortkey">
<e>
<xsl:apply-templates select="@*" mode="sortkey">
<xsl:sort select="." data-type="string"/>
</xsl:apply-templates>
</e>
</xsl:template>

(not tested)
