Hi Phil,

Attribute is the right term. The path for the 'eng' value is similar
to the one for '24':

  /table/row/column[@name = 'Language']

[You have a '/.' at the end of the path that you're using, which you
shouldn't have.]

You can set the value of an attribute using an attribute value
template, in which expressions inside {}s are evaluated and inserted
into the attribute value, as follows:

<xsl:template match="/">
  <Product language="{/table/row/column[@name = 'Language']}">
        select="/table/row/column[@name = 'ProductID']" />

Alternatively, you could use an xsl:attribute as follows:

<xsl:template match="/">
    <xsl:attribute name="language">
          select="/table/row/column[@name = 'Language']" />
        select="/table/row/column[@name = 'ProductID']" />

This allows you to apply templates to the column to get its value, if
that's important to you.

I hope that helps,
