Re:  data translation => descendants appear side by sid
I searched for a different and more general approach (not limited to 2 base elements). The stylesheet is quite short:

<xsl:template match="root">
<html>
<head><title>Descriptions</title></head>
<body>
<table border="1">
<xsl:apply-templates select="base[not(count(following-sibling::base//description) > count(.//description))]//description"/>
</table>
</body>
</html>
</xsl:template>


<xsl:template match="description">
  <xsl:variable name="pos" select="position()"/>
  <tr>
    <xsl:for-each select="/root/base">
      <td>
        <xsl:value-of select="(.//description)[$pos]"/>
      </td>
    </xsl:for-each>
  </tr>
</xsl:template>

But I found a bug in Xalan: When using <xsl:value-of select=".//description[$pos]"/>, I already get the wanted result.

But when I read in the spec

"For example
appendix//ulist/item[position()=1]
matches a node if and only if all of the following are true:
* ...
* evaluating the PredicateExpr position()=1 with the node as context node and the *siblings* of the node that are item elements as the context node list yields true
* ..."


I suspect this behaviour is wrong, isn't it?

should be transformed into:

<table>
    <tr>
        <td>some_desc1</td>
        <td>some_desc1</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
        <td>some_desc2</td>
        <td>some_add_desc2</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
        <td>some_add_desc3</td>
        <td>some_desc3</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
        <td>some_add_desc4</td>
        <td>some_desc4</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
        <td></td>
        <td>some_add_desc5</td>
    </tr>
</table>
