xslt for ordering attribute with in a node

Hi ,
I was looking for xslt to rearrang the order of attibutes within a
node.

xml to xml translation...

<obj d="xslt" a="me" c="to" b="new"/>
<prop c="it" b="does" a="how" d="matter"/>

to

<obj a="me" b="new" c="to" d="xslt"/>
<prop a="how" b="does" c="it" d="matter"/>
Thanks alot

Hi,
Tempore 18:01:45, die Monday 01 August 2005 AD, hinc in foro {comp.text.xml} scripsit <gd****@gmail.com>:
I was looking for xslt to rearrang the order of attibutes within a
node. You're out of luck today: that is not possible.
xml to xml translation...

<obj d="xslt" a="me" c="to" b="new"/>
<prop c="it" b="does" a="how" d="matter"/>

to

<obj a="me" b="new" c="to" d="xslt"/>
<prop a="how" b="does" c="it" d="matter"/>

XML parsers don't distinguish between these 2 element pairs. Document order does not apply to attributes. Also, the attributes' order after serialization (that happens when the XSLT magic is done) is not predictable.
