Hi i have xml file with nodes that could hold any type of input:

XML code:
<Employees>
<Employee>
<Code>1.2.3</Code>
<name>John</name>
</Employee>
<Employee>
<Code>2.3.9</Code>
<name>John</name>
</Employee>
<Employee>
<Code>2.3.8</Code>
<name>John</name>
</Employee>
<Employee>
<Code>a</Code>
<name>John</name>
</Employee>
<Employee>
<Code>z</Code>
<name>John</name>
</Employee>
<Employee>
<Code>11.2.4</Code>
<name>John</name>
</Employee>
<Employee>
<Code>2.3.7</Code>
<name>John</name>
</Employee>
<Employee>
<Code>d.1.5</Code>
<name>John</name>
</Employee>
<Employee>
<Code>a.2.1</Code>
<name>John</name>
</Employee>
<Employee>
<Code>c.4.2</Code>
<name>John</name>
</Employee>
<Employee>
<Code>d.1.5</Code>
<name>John</name>
</Employee>
<Employee>
<Code>a.2.1.3</Code>
<name>John</name>
</Employee>
<Employee>
<Code>c.4.2.7</Code>
<name>John</name>
</Employee>
<Employee>
<Code>a.2.1.1</Code>
<name>John</name>
</Employee>
<Employee>
<Code>c.4.2.2</Code>
<name>John</name>
</Employee>
<Employee>
<Code>c.4.2.7</Code>
<name>John</name>
</Employee>
<Employee>
<Code>e</Code>
<name>John</name>
</Employee>
<Employee>
<Code>g</Code>
<name>John</name>
</Employee>
</Employees>

The problem is that i can get any type of input and i don't know the amount of tokens between the data (or there might be no tokens

it could be a.b.c and it could be a.b.c.d or only a and only b (letters only) or 1 only and 8 only or 8.2.a .

Im looking for a way to tokenize the input and compare each token based on its type...

How can i do it (or how can i do the sort with other method???)

i need to sort with xslt (xsl file)

Thanks ahead

Daniel
