Re:  identity template to filter and modify atributes
You need to drop in the new attribute after you have opened the header node, after you have copied the existing attributes but before you copy the children.

You copy the attribute before you start the element node:

Error on line 26 of file:/C:/tmp/col.xsl:
XTDE0410: An attribute node (col) cannot be created after the children of the containing element
Transformation failed: Run-time errors were reported

so move things around to be in this order

<!-- That's the idea, but it doesn't work ... -->

		<xsl:attribute name="col">
			 <xsl:value-of select="$colCount"/>

<xsl:apply-templates select="node()[not(key('keyHidden',name()) != '')]"/>

note that not(name()='@col' never does anything as the name is never the string '@col' I expect you mean current()/@col, or something.

also don't do

	<xsl:variable name="colCount">
			<xsl:value-of select="@col - count(col/*[@hide =


	<xsl:variable name="colCount" select="@col - count(col/*[@hide =

as it's less to type, and a lot more efficient making colCount the number 8 rather than a result tree fragment consisting of a document node with a child text node with string value the serialisation of 8 as a decimal string.
