Hi Cristobal,

xsl:copy-of always copies the nodes that you select with it *and* all
their attributes and all their descendants.

You can copy just the node that you're on with:

  <xsl:copy />

And you can copy a all the attributes on the element you're on with:

  <xsl:copy-of select="@*" />

Putting those together, the template you want is:

<xsl:template match="ROW">
      <xsl:copy-of select="@*" />

I hope that helps,
