xsl for each using attribute

Thank you again for helping me with this. Have you written a book or
anything I can buy? :-)

We are getting very close. I can output the name of each column, but somehow
I am having trouble figuring how to actually use that column name as the
data attribute name. Your original syntax:

<xsl:value-of select="$row/@*[name()=.]">

...didn't didn't seem to work (I get no data). And yet if I do <xsl:value-of
select="." /> I do get the column names. Here's what I have so far, which is
basically a straight copy of what you gave me.

	<xsl:variable name="columns"

	<table width="95%" class="reporttable" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="2">
	  <xsl:for-each select="/root/row">
		  	<xsl:variable name="aRow" select="."/>
		  	<xsl:for-each select="$columns">
					<xsl:value-of select="$aRow/column[@name=.]" />  <!-- my lame
attempt -->

Thanks again.

ah I was lacking meta markup. I did xsl:sort on name because that would
work for column1 column2 etc, I should have known they were not the real

so actually I'd zap the key and instead do

<xsl:variable name="columns"
<xsl:for-each select="row">
<xsl:variable name="row" select="."/>
<xsl:for-each select="$columns">
  <xsl:value-of select="$row/@*[name()=.]">

untested as ever.
