Thanks I got it sorted by authors surname, however there are similar
  authors with different dates, can I sort it by date too after surname?
By the way what is that ".//surname" means? I tried to put another line
after that to sort by date like

        <xsl:sort select=".//surname"/>
        <xsl:sort select=".//pubdate"/>

but sorting by date didn't work. Sorry If I am asking really stupid
question. :-)

Sorry Yoshihiro, I forgot to mention that I used biblioentry inside
bibliodiv. Thanks for your help too.
