I have located what appears to me to be bug in the XSLTProcessor in PHP5.2.13 but want to insure that I am not overlooking something before reporting it. Any advice will be appreciated.
The issue is apparent discrepancies in output sort order in an XSLTProcessor generated list. Following is a detailed description. Scenario: Disk resident xml file with a top level "Places" element and a list of subordinate "Place" elements. Each "Place" element has a "fullName" attribute with self explanatory value. Place heirarchy is indicated by comma separated fields in the attribute value, e.g. Accomac Co., Virginia, USA. Also, a disk resident xsl file whose purpose is to transform the xml file into a html file with the "Place" element collection sorted and rewritten as a list of full place names. When the xsl translation is invoked by assigning the xsl to the xml file and accessing the xml file in IE8, the displayed output appears exactly as expected, e.g. Accomack Co., VA, USA Adams Co., PA, USA Ahoskie Twp., Hertford Co., NC, USA Ahoskie, Hertford Co., NC, USA AK, USA AL, USA Alachua Co., FL, USA Alamance Co., NC, USA Alameda Co., CA, USA Alameda, Alameda Co., CA, USA However, when invoked via the following php script, using PHP5.2.13 - $xml = new DOMDocument(); $xml->load("F:\Places.xml"); $xsl = new DOMDocument(); $xsl->load("F:\Places.xsl"); $xslt = new XSLTProcessor(); $xslt->importStylesheet($xsl); echo $xslt1->transformToXML($xml); some sort order discrepancies appear in the output, e.g. AK, USA AL, USA Accomack Co., VA, USA Adams Co., PA, USA Ahoskie Twp., Hertford Co., NC, USA Ahoskie, Hertford Co., NC, USA Alachua Co., FL, USA Alamance Co., NC, USA Alameda Co., CA, USA Alameda, Alameda Co., CA, USA Note that the state records, which have upper case second character, incorrectly appear ahead of other places. This behavior appears even if the "case-order='lower-first'" attribute is included in the <xsl:sort> element in the xsl stylesheet.
