When I filed this "bug" I had focused on the sample input, output, and XSLT
code in the specification. Based on your comment I reread the text accompanying
the example again and see that it says "The four columns are to contain [...]
third, a comma-separated alphabetical list of the city names within that
country". That means the order "Lyon, Paris" is what the textual description
specifies, an alphabetical list. Only in that case the XSLT sample does not
achieve what the textual description requires, as it outputs "Paris, Lyon".

So somehow the textual description, the sample output and the sample XSLT code
need to be aligned.
