Dear XSL-ers

To become familiar with XML & XSL, I am in the process of representing a
web site using these technologies. I have just reached a bit of a hurdle
and wondered if you guys could offer some advice....

Below is a fragment from a xml document which states Philips Research as
a "participant". I want to use XSL to set produce a HTML page that
includes a link to the Philips Research www site. My problem is that i
don't know how to set the value of the HTML's HREF attribute to the
specified URL.

I have also included a fragment of the XSL style sheet which is to
format the xml into html. If someone could offer a solution to my
problem, that would be great.



>>>>> Fragment of XML document

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
  <participant link="";>Philips Research

>>>>>>>>> Fragment of XSL Stylesheet

<xsl:template match="participants">
  <xsl:for-each select="participant">
    <!-- set the HREF attribute to the value of @link -->
    <!-- this doesn't work: -->
    <!-- <A HREF="<xsl:value-of select="@link"/>">click here</A> -->
