You're looking in the right places. You can confirm which file Tellico 
is using with

kde4-config --path data --locate tellico/tellico-printing.xsl

The sorting is actually done by Tellico before it passes the data to the 
XSL file. You should be able to click on the issue number column, then 
click the series column, and then the print should be in the same order 
you see in the window.

That said, the tellico-printing.xsl file is rather complex. I"m assuming 
you're putting xsl:sort statements below the xsl:for-each for the 
entries? That path for the output is used if the entries are not being 
grouped, which is one of the options in the print dialog.

Does that help?
