connection is an AVT so it should be connection="{$connection}".

xsl:attribute creates an attribute node in the result tree - never an
attribute for the containing instruction in the stylesheet. 

row-tag and column-tag are not AVTs, they must be supplied as literal
values. Those attributes that *are* AVTs are described as such in the


The SQL extension to Saxon was all user-contributed, the reason I say it's
not production-quality is that I don't have the resources to do the
extensive testing needed to do it justice. (I have accepted user-contributed
code in this area that was accompanied by very little test material,
something that I wouldn't do for the mainstream product).
