If you want detailed control over collating sequences you'll need to use XSLT 2.0. Even then, it's to some extent product dependent. But you appear to want Unicode codepoint collation, which you can request in XSLT 2.0 by specifying collation="http://www.w3.org/2005/xpath-functions/collation/codepoint" as an attribute of xsl:sort.
