Indeed ... pushing child nodes like this reflects the inherent nested nature of XML structure. It is really only "recursion" when it is the same element structure being processed.

Also, I didn't' think of the
position() function, which will help me get the correct sort.

I remind my students that the definition of position() changes during a sort: after the selection is made, position() reflects the order of the population being sorted, then after the sort is completed, position() reflects the order of the sorted results.

Good luck in your project.
