Well this is an interesting question: What does "." stand for? Current 
'something'. I think in the draft it refers to the current element, i.e., 
generally the element matched by the template/select combination. With the MS 
implementation, I'm not so sure of this.				...edN

|      <xsl:value-of select="."/>
|    </A>
|  </xsl:template>

I'm not familiar with what the "." syntax is implying, but I was able
to get a simple example like this to work fine.

The Data
  <email foobar="smuench"/>

The Stylesheet
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="";>
<xsl:template >

<xsl:template match="email">
  <a><xsl:attribute name="href"><xsl:eval>"mailto:";</xsl:eval><xsl:value-of
