           Summary: Dynamic sort order and collation for order by
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Working drafts
          Platform: PC

            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2

It's often necessary to choose between sort order and collation used at
runtime, especially when implementing a GUI - which typically has toggles for
options like these. This is particularly hard to do right now, as the "order
by" syntax has these as statically determined properties of the expression. One
possible way tp do this currently is:

order by
  if($asc) then $i/title else () ascending,
  if($asc) then () else $i/title descending

It would be beneficial to allow an alternate form of "order by" that allows
these properties to be specified at runtime.
