leaf names

Use a template mode to generate the header rows:

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"

 <xsl:output method="xml" version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" indent="yes"
  doctype-public="-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"

 <xsl:template match="/">
  <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

 <xsl:template match="A/B">
  <table border="1">
    <xsl:apply-templates select="D[1]" mode="header"/>
    <xsl:apply-templates select="D"/>

 <xsl:template match="D" mode="header">
   <xsl:apply-templates select="E/* | F/* | G/GG/*" mode="header"/>

 <xsl:template match="D">
   <xsl:apply-templates select="E/* | F/* | G/GG/*"/>

 <xsl:template match="E/* | F/* | G/GG/*" mode="header">
   <xsl:value-of select="local-name()"/>

 <xsl:template match="E/* | F/* | G/GG/*">
   <xsl:value-of select="."/>
