RE: [saxon] Strange things: xsl:sort with lang attribute

  Question on the Saxon list regarding the context of the AVT in
  <xsl:for-each select="foo">
    <xsl:sort lang="{...}" />

Then please add something in the XSLT 2.0 spec. I couldn't find
something at first go.

To my mind it is a little bit odd that in
<xsl:sort select="expr1" lang="{expr2}" />
expr1 and expr2 refer to different context nodes.
