xsl table layout

<xsl:template name="tableHead">
  <xsl:for-each select="//table//thead//entry">
    <col width="{ancestor::colspec[@colname =
current()/@colname][1]/@colwidth}" />
  <xsl:for-each select="//table//thead//entry">
      <xsl:value-of select="."/>

It should output col elements with the specified width attribute. It's
really un-efficient way of doing it because of all the the //s , so you
should probably rewrite it so that it will only have to go throught the
entry elements once. Also, match pattern such as "//tbody/row[position()
mod 2 = 0]" would probably be better rewritten to something like
"tbody/row[position() mod 2 = 0]" - better yet, 

<xsl:template match="row">
    <xsl:for-each select="entry">
        <xsl:if test="position() mod 2 = 0">
          <xsl:attribute name="class">table_row_color</xsl:attribute>
        <xsl:value-of select="."/>

Hope this helps,
