Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Re: sorting bibliography by authors


I am answering myself :-)

I got it by date too. Though ".//" seems like two steps deep inside tag 
structure (I really don't have idea yet), by removing ".//" in my 
pubdate worked fine. It looks like this now:

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

Thanks again! :-)
