Good catch, Johan!
You were the only person to report this error.
I'll fix it in the next version of the XQuery spec.

Apparent error in XQuery 1.0 example 3.8.4

Dear all,

XQuery 1.0 Spec found in http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/WD-xquery-20041029/
appears to have a small error in the example in paragraph 3.8.4

The part of the XQuery expression listing the books is...

          for $b in $bib/book[author = $a]
          order by $b/title                <=== !
          return $b/title

It specifies that the books should be ordered by title.

According to the text, the outcome for author 'Stevens' should be...

         <title>TCP/IP Illustrated</title>
         <title>Advanced Programming
                in the Unix Environment</title>

But these titles do not appear to be ordered.
