Open the Fields Editor and check if the field type is "Number". If it 
is, it should do numeric sorting, without a need for zero padding.

Yeah, the XSL gets complicated for sure. That param line is used to 
determine which fields get shown. But that setting in the XSL file only 
gets used if the XSL file is used outside of Tellico. When Tellico uses 
it, the column names get passed from Tellico (to match the ones 
currently in the column view) so the ones in the XSL file get ignored.
