[xquery-talk] Wrong sort and distainct-values result in nested queryes - parameters passing problems

 you have

  for $Flat in doc("/db/Flat.xml")/x/y

so $Flat is (at each iteration) a single y element node.
      let $Ordered      := local:Order($Flat)
so local:order is just being passed a single y node so the sorting is a
no-op as it is a sequence of length 1.

so this just returns $Ordered which is always the same as $Flat
      return $Ordered

and the end result is that the original sequence is generated.

You want to sort the sequence as a whole, not each item in the sequence
