You didn't say what language you are using to do the sort.

I'm using xslt 1.0 :(
thank for your answer.

In XSLT2 for
example you could use something like

<xsl:stylesheet version=" 2.0"

<xsl:output indent="yes"/>

<xsl:template match="x">
<xsl:perform-sort select="*">
<xsl:sort select="string-join(for $i in tokenize(.,'\.') return


$ saxon8 srt.xml srt.xsl
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Of course if your example is really representative, and all your numbers
are single digits then you don't need to split things up and rejoin, you
can just use
<xsl:sort select="."/>
which of course is also easy to do in xslt1
