OK, 
This is the recursive stylesheet I have, to handle a generic XML. 
How does the thing you explained with the 'e' fit here. 

xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0">

    <xsl:template match="*">

        <xsl:copy>

            <xsl:for-each select="@*">

                <xsl:sort select="name(.)"/>

                <xsl:attribute name="{name(.)}">

                    <xsl:value-of select="."/>

                </xsl:attribute>

            </xsl:for-each>

           

            <xsl:apply-templates>

                <!-- the select for this sort needs to be the concatenated 			name-value pairs of all the attributes sorted 					in alphabetical order -->
			
		<xsl:sort select="name(.)"/>

            </xsl:apply-templates>

        </xsl:copy>

    </xsl:template>

</xsl:stylesheet>

'e' is jsut a random name. It can be everything; it's not related to  
elements residing in the input file who also happen to be named 'e'.
