         Are you looking for something like below:

<?xml version='1.0'?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
             <xsl:output method="xml" encoding="utf-8"/>

             <!--Look in the Results-->
             <xsl:template match="/">
                                     <!--First Find All The Portfolios-->


             <!--Process The Portfolios-->
             <xsl:template match="weather-data-list">



                  <xsl:variable name="coltoselect" select="."/>


                  <xsl:variable name="coltext" select="."/>

                  <xsl:for-each select="$coltoselect//* | $coltoselect/@*">

                  <xsl:if test="local-name(.) = $coltext">

                  <xsl:value-of select="."/>
                  <xsl:text>        </xsl:text>

Hi everyone, I'm kinda new to XSL and have a XML file that I'm looking to
transform to an HTML table via XSLT.   The problem lies in where the XML
file actually contains the instructions of which data columns to display
and in what order.  Below is my XML where the columns are listed in the
"/weather-report/report-format-column-list" and the actual data is in
"/weather-report/weather-details/weather-data-list".   The values in
<column> are the element/attribute names in the <weather-data> nodes.  I
have so ability to change the <report-format> node set but no the
<weather-details> node set.  Any help would be appreciated.

                  <column order="1">location</column>
                  <column order="2">temperature</column>
                  <column order="3">cloud-coverage</column>
                  <column order="4">accumulation</column>
                  <column order="5">parcipitation-chance</column>
                  <weather-data location="SFO">

                        <wind-mph>10 NNW</wind-mph>
                  <weather-data location="DET">

                        <wind-mph>1 E</wind-mph>
