[xsl] How to refer to the tag name

Hi all. I think (hope!) this is a simple question ...

I have a stylesheet in which I want to refer to the tag name, not the tag contents. My XML is built dynamically as a result of a database query and looks like this:


I simply want to build column headers based on the names of the column tags - id, name, dob. So I have a template rule to match the first occurance of <row>:

<xsl:template match="row[position()=1]">
  <tr bgcolor="#666699">
    <xsl:for-each select="*">
     <td class="base-text"><font color="#FFFFFF"><center><b>
      <!-- What goes here? -->

All I need is to get the name of each child tag of the row element as I loop through with <xsl:for-each>. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.
