Re: Creating HTML tags through XSL.

dog tag template
The "</TABLE/>" tag is not legal in xml or html.  "<TABLE BORDER="0"/>" is
also not what you want, because it ends the TABLE tag right there.

Before asking how to write xslt code, you should write an example of the
html that you want to produce from an example of the source xml.  Test it,
and when the html is working, THEN you can start to work on the xslt.

You can count with <xsl:number/>, you can set variables with with
xsl:variable, and you can get the current position with position().  Between
these, you ought to be able to do what you want.
