html select blank
I thought you might be needing a generic solution (when number of
columns are variable).

Here is a solution for this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">

<xsl:output method="html" indent="yes" />

<xsl:template match="/worksheet">
          <xsl:for-each select="row[@number = '0']/col">
            <th><xsl:value-of select="." /></th>
        <xsl:variable name="n" select="count(row[@number = '0']/col) - 1" />
        <xsl:for-each select="row[not(@number = '0')]">
            <xsl:call-template name="GenerateRows">
              <xsl:with-param name="m" select="$n" />
              <xsl:with-param name="n" select="$n" />
              <xsl:with-param name="row" select="." />

<xsl:template name="GenerateRows">
 <xsl:param name="m" />
 <xsl:param name="n" />
 <xsl:param name="row" />

 <xsl:if test="$m &gt;= 0">
   <td><xsl:value-of select="$row/col[@number = ($n - $m)]" /></td>
   <xsl:call-template name="GenerateRows">
     <xsl:with-param name="m" select="$m - 1" />
     <xsl:with-param name="n" select="$n" />
     <xsl:with-param name="row" select="$row" />

I'm very new to XSLT and I need to create an HTML table from XML
using XSLT.  The XML looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
   <row number="0">
     <col number="0">Name</col>
     <col number="1">Grade</col>
     <col number="2">Phone</col>
     <col number="3">City</col>
     <col number="4">State</col>
   <row number="1">
     <col number="0">Anna</col>
     <col number="1">3</col>
     <col number="2">555-5555</col>
     <col number="3">Livermore</col>
     <col number="4">CA</col>
   <row number="2">
     <col number="0">David</col>
     <col number="1">4</col>
     <col number="3">Livermore</col>
     <col number="4">CA</col>
   <row number="3">
     <col number="0">Jane</col>
     <col number="1">5</col>

I want a resulting HTML table that accounts for the fact that every
piece of data is in the correct column but not every row has data
in all columns.  For example, in my example, Anna has all data,
but David does not have a phone number, and Jane only has a grade.

Thanks for you help.
