the following is a well-formed xhtml file:
<input type="text" name="n1" value="v1"/>
<input type="text" name="n2" value="v2"/>
<input type="text" name="n3" value="title"/>
I want to transform it into a plain text file such as:
That means I need to move third element to the top,
how can I do it? It took a long while with no answer.

Would <xsl:sort/> do the trick?

I modified DOM code, and it works fine now.
