just apply templates to the relevant attributes and then have a template
that writes out the necessary stuff, something like this perhaps where I
just added the indented lines

<xsl:template match="row">
<xsl:variable name="here" select="."/>
<xsl:for-each select="1 to ../@col">
<xsl:variable name="cell" select="$here/cell[@col=current()]"/>
<xsl:value-of select="max(($cell/@rowspan,1))"/>
<xsl:value-of select="max(($cell/@colspan,1))"/>
      (@* except (@rowspan,@colspan))"/>
<xsl:apply-templates select="$cell/node()"/>

   <xsl:template match="cell/@*">
   <xsl:value-of separator="" select="';',name(),':',."/>
